Landed on back of head. Why did it pain? Why headaches?

I fell over playing football, I first landed on the back of my head quite hard and then my back. I got up strait away but my head hurt slightly and I had an ache on the back of my neck and on my back. This all went away about an hour or two later. The next, which was yesterday, day my back and neck were fine but I had a slight ache in my right neck muscle. Now today when I woke up both my neck muscles ached and I had a slight headache . I have taken one paracemol and the headache has almost gone and the aches in my neck muscles have eased. Should I get this seen to? How long could theses pains and aches last?

Hi, Bergen,
Thanks for query.
It seems that due to fall you might have neck muscle strain giving rise to this pain.
As there is no other signs of having head injury, you should not worry.
Within 2-3 days you will be fine.
Take pain relieving tablet as and when required.
Ok and bye.
