Experiencing headaches and vomiting after head injury. Is this something more than concussion?

I banged my head pretty hard on the ground on Thursday playing soccer, and have experienced headaches and vomiting since. Earlier on it felt as if it had gone completely and I tried masturbating, but I was going for about 5 seconds and my headaches came straight back and it s thumping again. Could there possibly be something more than concussion?

Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that your symptoms do not point to any serious internal brain injury.

As of now, you can take analgesics such as ibuprofen for headache.

Please watch for the following symptoms- severe headache, repeated vomiting, double vision, drowsiness, fits, etc. If you notice any of these, please consult a doctor and get CT scan of the brain done.

Wishing you good health,
