Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that your symptoms do not suggest any serious head injury.

It is fairly common to have dizziness after mild head injuries, which tends to get aggravated with change of head position and movements of body.

This is self limiting in nature and subsides on it own in a few days. If the dizziness is very troublesome, you could take betahistine tablets.

Wishing you good health,
