Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I wish to reassure you that your current symptoms are unlikely to be related to the head injury that you suffered about a week back.

These symptoms are possibly a migraine attack, brought on with sleep deprivation.

You should ensure adequate sleep at nights (7-8 hours per night) and eat food on time. If headache is troublesome, you may take ibuprofen or diclofenac tablets.

Wishing you good health,
