Forehead injury, large bump above eyebrow bone, headache, pain behind eyes. Treatment for symptoms?

I fell and hit the right side of my forehead really hard yesterday afternoon. I have a large goose egg above my eye brow bone and my cheek bone. Today I have a headache and my eyes, especially my right eye feels funny. My head actually hurts behind my eyes. The back of my head hurts too, like a tension headache . I am not dizzy, do not have vomiting and have not lose consciousnesses.

Thank you for using HCM
From your description you are not presenting with any serious head injury, just a mild cranial contusion with pain and swelling. Not being dizzy, no vomitting and no loss of consciousness are good signs and shows that there are no active cerebral lesions (no signs of increased intracranial pressure). So all you will need is an antiinflammatory such as ibuprofen associated to acetamenophen.
Though a visit to your doctor for proper evaluation will also be useful.

Hope this helps
