Thank you for posting your query.

Based on your symptoms, you seem to have suffered a minor head injury and post-traumatic vertigo.

There is no need to worry now, as the symptoms usually subside in a few days. For relief of symptoms, you may take betahistine tablets.

However, if symptoms persist longer, you may consult a doctor.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
