Hi there,
As per your history,you have a H/o blunt injury on your head.You havnt mentioned if you had a swelling at the sight of injury,wether you felt dizzy at the moment.Do feel nauseatic.?.well ,if no such symptoms present,then have nothing to worry.If you are still experiencing mild pain at the sight of injury,ice pack fomentation should help you.If pain little more,take any analgesic at the time of sleep.If yet any doubt,then go ahead and get an X-ray skull or CT-scan,plain(head),done.this will clear all your doubts and you can peacefully enjoy your trip to Ohio..So take care,best of journey.

Thank you for contacting Healthcare Magic.
You have suffered a mild head injury and have no significant symptoms. In this situation, you should be able to fly. Please watch for the following symptoms that should alert you for any significant problem- severe headache, vomiting, double vision, bleeding from nose or ear, any loss of consciousness or seizures (fits). If you develop any of these symptoms, you should meet an Emergency Physician and get a CT scan of the head done. If you remain well, you can safely fly to Ohio.
Wishing you good health and a safe flight to Ohio,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
