Continuous headaches, migraine post hit at the back of head. Cause and remedy?

I hit the back of my head in a basketball game in January. I got a catscan and they said I just had a bruised skull and the migraines and headaches would go away in a few weeks. The Migraines did but the headaches are always there. Then hit my head in June twice, almost as hard as the first time...I didnt go see a doctor. But the migraines came back and headaches got worse. The migianes stopped when basketball was over in July but this week I started volleyball and the migraines came back.

Neurologist 's  Response
Headaches (migraines or otherwise) are known to persist for up to 3 years after a head injury considered significant enough to be classified as either a traumatic brain injury or concussion. If the "hit" to the back of your head did not really daze you or cause you to become confused or disoriented in any way then, it is less likely that it could be classifiable as a true concussion. But if the strike to the head did cause you to become dazed, confused, disoriented, or otherwise, "out of it" to any extent then, headaches may persist for quite some time.
