Thank you for posting your query.

Your symptoms of headaches and memory problems could be related to concussion that you suffered in the car crash, and it would recover on own over time. So, there is no need to worry.

However, if your symptoms persist, or if they get worse, then, you should get your CT scan of the brain done.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
