Slipped and fell on tile floor, headaches in one area of head, nausea, pain on moving. Do I need a CT scan or MRI?

I slipped and fell on tile floor two weeks ago. I didn t notice a headache until the day after. Today, I still have a headache. However, it is more in one area opposed to my whole head aching two weeks ago. I have not thrown up, I did not loose conciousness. I do feel nauseated and my head hurts more when I move too much. Is it too late to get a ct scan or MRI? Thank you

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms. First of all, I would like to reassure you that your symptoms do not suggest any serious head injury.

Based on the description, you seem to have suffered a mild head injury.

Your headache should subside in a few days. However, if they are persisting, you can still get a brain CT or MRI scan done.

I hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
Best wishes,
