Head injury can cause various effects ranging from a mild concussion to massive intracranial hemorrhage. U immediately need brain imaging, preferable CT, to rule out any pathologies.
If there s any obvious intracranial pathology, u need a neurosurgical consultation. If not u may need to take better analgesics and migraine prophylaxis including antiepileptics or antidepressants.
