Thanks for the query,

Please note that the symptoms that you have is like that of vertigo. The severity of brain injury after head trauma can be known from the associated complaints. These are vomiting, weakness of legs/hands, seizures, loss of memory and so on.

In the absence of these complaints, the chance of severe brain injury is less lilkey. You may take a short course of betahistine, cinarizine AND ANALGESICS AND WAIT. The other option is to get immediately a CT scan to rule out any major problem and treated.

Donot worry much, you will improve

Best wishes
