Head injury. Headache, low grade fever, dizziness. Low hematocrit value. Internal bleeding?

My daughter fainted and hit the back of her head hard on cement. At first there was a golf sized lump. A few hours later it was gone. She has a mild head ache, feels a bit woozy and had a low grade fever the last few days, which she says is making her feel woozy and sounds are a bit dim but not terrible. We went to the ER. The golf sized lump is gone and we are home. At the hospital they said her hematocrit was a little low 32. She just finished her period and is 19 years old. is there any concern of internal bleeding?

see fever is sign of inflammation which can be after injury but if see have severe headache,vomiting,epileptic attack,loss of consciousness or difficulty in seeing(vision) then you should consult a neurosurgeon. Regarding low hematocrit at age 19 this could not be due to bleeding in brain as there is no much space to accumulate so much blood without above mentioned symtoms.This may be due to her periods.
