Neurologist 's  Response
If you were unconscious following the fall and headache is still persisting then you should consult the doctor. After examining you if doctor feels, he may ask for a scan to rule out any internal injuries. the pain and swelling in your left hand is most likely due to additional injury to the hand at the time of fall. for that you may have to consult an orthopedic doctor.
Good luck.
