Extreme thirst after a bad fall. Serious?

My husband fell off a child s swing a couple of hours ago and hit the back of his head. He saw stars but stayed conscious. It made him woozy for a while. He seems ok now but has extreme thirst, he s drunk about 4 pints of water, but I stopped him having more. Is this serious? It s almost midnight and he s insisted on going to bed.
