Next before you go to the doctor you should try the following:-
Ask someone to stay with you and keep within easy reach of a telephone and medical help for the first 48 hours after the injury
Have plenty of rest and avoid stressful situations
Do not drink alcohol
Do not take sleeping pills, sedatives or tranquillisers
Do not take aspirin
Take painkillers, such as paracetamol, if you have a headache
Do not play any contact sport, such as football or rugby, for at least three weeks, and speak to your doctor before you start playing again
Do not return to work, college or school until you have completely recovered and feel ready
Do not drive a car, motorbike or bicycle or operate machinery until you have completely recovered

Hi thanks for your question.
You didn't felt any pain at the time of because you were under the influence of alcohol. The lump which you’re having on your forehead could be a haematoma (collection of blood under skin and muscle) due to fall. Hope fully the haematoma will get resolved of itself. However in case dizziness, headache remained persistent and you developed other symptoms like vomiting you need to go to ER and get your CT Scan head done to rule out any internal bleeding.
Hope this answers your question.
