Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
Yes you should consider. If there was amnesia then it warrants doing an MRI scan of the brain. Many times epidural and subdural hematoma may present late after some lucid interval. Doing an MRI in such situation is a must, even if it comes negative.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
