Extreme soreness on the creek bone, temple after hitting the head. Could it be concussion?

Hi, I fell out of bed on Saturday hitting my bed hard on a wooden floor. I hit the top of my creek bone and my temple. There is no bruising or lump but it is extremely sore to touch. Today is Tuesday and I still feel very sickly although I havnt actually been sick and very very tired. I have no memory of before it happened and am worried it may be more than concussion .

Dear Claritodd, hello.
Your injury seems to be just a soft tissue injury. The pain will subside by itself in few days. You have to give second thought if you experience any of the following symptoms:-
1. Loss of consciousness
2. Irritability.
3. Drowsiness
4. Nausea & vomitting
5. Seeing of flashing lights
6. Convulsions
7. Walking problems
8. Persistent headache.

If any symptom persist, contact medical proffessional help and have a scan of your head done.
I hope I am able to help you. Thanks.
