Thanks for writing to us.
Headache and vertigo that your friend is having is not likely to be due to the fall he had 17 years ago.
Proper investigations like MRI, EEG and other relevant tests are needed to find out the cause of his problem. He should consult a neurologist to find out the exact cause and proper treatment at the earliest.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
