Hello and welcome to healthcare magic.Thanks for your query

You have sustained a head injury with a bruise on the scalp, followed by symptoms like nausea, severe headache, dizziness and a black eye.

Some of these symptoms are serious and necessitate a further evaluation. So, I would suggest you to seek emergency medical help, which will include a thorough physical examination, x ray skull and if required, CT brain.

Other danger signs to watch for are loss of conciousness, convulsions, amnesia (brief loss of memory), bleeding from nose / ears / mouth and weakness or numbness of any part of the body.
