Dear Mr.Gillian ,
first of all be at ease and don't be afraid.
the bump on your head and the headache will subside by itself as time passes by. you can aplly ice to reduce the pain. if headache is severe please take some pain killer.
what you have to observe is that whether the confusion part repeats or increases. If yes, then consult a neurophysician immediately.
