Sore bump on the head after head being hit. Feeling light headed. Concerned

I had a stomach bug last Thursday & while I was getting sick in the bathroom I either hit my head on the side of the toilet bowl or fell down backwards & hit the right side of my head really hard on the tiled floor. It became really sore with a bump on the head. Three days later I just feel light headed & still sore. Is this cause for concern ? Email: YYYY@YYYY

Thank you for posting your query.

I would like to reassure you that your symptoms do not suggest any serious internal injury.

The symptoms are due to mild head injury and minor concussion.

For relief of symptoms, you may take betahistine tablets.

You should get better in 5-7 days.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
