Hard hit on forehead, fell unconscious. Woke up, doesn't remember the fall. Should we worry ?

Hi, all the lights were off and my friend opened the door and ran into it on her forehead . She then turned around a fell on the floor. I shook her leg and was saying her name and she wasn t replying. She woke up 5-10 seconds later and didn t remember falling. Is it okay for her to go to sleep it has been about 15 minutes

I would recommend a visit to doctor in this case.Any head injury should be clinical evaluated, even if it is just precautionary. Since she was unconscious for few seconds with event amnesia, she surely needs to rule out any internal injury.
