Head injury, sleeping constantly, nausea, dizziness. Normal?

On monday a very heavy object fell on my head. I was completly dissorianed but was not unconscious. I was dizzy and totally confused. The next couple of days I slept constantly and continued to be dizzy and and nauseaus. I can walk, read and have not lost intellectual function. I do not have any health insurance so I am terrified. I had perfect health before this an am a middle aged woman. Is nausea and dizzyness normal after 5 days of being hit in the head? There was no bleeding and I have a bump on the top left side of my head. I just feel nauseas and fevered. Please advise. Thanks for your kindness!

Thanks for writing your query.
Head injury can result in Concussion injury.In this there can be symptoms like :-
1. Persistent headache
2. Dizziness
3. Nausea and vomiting
4. Difficulty in balance of body
5. Memory loss
Concussion injury takes few days to weeks for recovery. Proper rest makes the healing quicker. So, you should take proper rest. Avoid watching television/computer and even text messaging.
If the problem persists or get worse, you should get yourself examined by a Neurophysician.
I hope this is useful to you.
