Bump on the head with black out after an injury to head. Need to be worried?

I bent down at work to pick something up and when I stood up I hit my head (top near back) on an open cabinet door's corner. I shut my eyes due to pain afterwards and when I opened them everything seemed to fade in from blacl (if that makes any sense). The pain eventually stopped unless I touched it, and 10 hours later there still is no pain unless I touch it but I noticed there is an indent on my head now and the pain from touching it is sharp

Hi there ~

It is concerning that you seemed to open your eyes after you hit your head and everything seemed to fade in from black. The pain eventually stopped but I highly recommend that you walk into the ER or your nearest ED as soon as possible and get a CT scan of your head to rule out any serious condition. I hope you take this advise.

Take care and have a lovely day! And be careful in the future!
