Extreme fatigue after hard hit on the head. Histroy of mild epilepsy. Head injury?

Hi 1 day ago i hit the lower part of my head on the bed frame very hard by accidentally, now i feel extremely tired, all i want to do is shut my eyes and sleep and by eyes feel heavy and achy. Can you offer some advice so i dont work myself up into thinking it could be extremely serious? Ive been seven years free of mild epilepsy but because it is a head injury it makes me worry. I am 18 by the way.

Thank you for posting your query.

Based on your symptoms, it seems to be mild head injury with mild concussion. It should resolve on its own in a few days.

There is no need to worry at present. If symptoms persist beyond a few days, you may consult a doctor.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
