Head injury. Tenderness on opposite side of impact. No headache or dizziness. Sinus issues?

I hit my head pretty hard when I stood up coming out of the attic. It was tender to the touch for a couple of days and then went away. Now two weeks later the top of my head is tender to the touch again...but on the opposite side of impact. I don t have a headache or dizziness . It just hurts when I touch my head or brush my hair. Could this be unrelated to my bumping my sinus issues maybe??

Thank you for posting your query.

It is unlikely to get pain and tenderness after two weeks of mild head injury, and that too on the opposite side. Therefore, the current pain is unrelated to the first event.

The likely causes could be a sinus infection (sinusitis) or mild muscle tension headache.

You could take analgesics such as ibuprofen for pain relief. If symptoms do not resolve in a few days, you may consult your GP.

Wishing you good health,
