Thanks for writing to us.
After a head injury the symptoms may be persistent for 6-8 weeks. You need adequate rest and repeated investigations to detect any neurological deficit. Gradually you will recover and will come back to your normal routine.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
