Dear Friend.

Sorry to hear about the incident.

You didn't tell us whether your scans were normal or not.

You might have been prescribed by your doctor a medication which is making you sleepy.

Regarding the head ache part., if your scans were normal, then nothing to worry as you might be having post concussion syndrome. In which head ache occurs post trauma.

Stay Healthy
