hi , she seems to have signs of raised intra cranial tension,difficulty in equilibrium,hence she must be taken to hospital and investigated with ct scan of the brain ,routine blood investigations,to rule out subarachnod haemorrage,extradural haemorrhage,intacranialoedema,later seen by a qualified neurologist and a neuro surgeon,but as the child is concious there may not be much worry.anti oedema measures, neuroprotective agents ,neurofriendly steroids, anti inflamatorydrugs with anti siezuresmay help in recovey.wish you speedy recovery.
