Brief Answer:
I don't see anything serious about your condition.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to "Ask a Doctor " service.

I have read your query and here is my advice.

Only headaches after head injury is an acceptable symptom, and there is nothing serious about your condition since there were no other symptoms such as loss of consciousness, nausea or vomitng, amnesia, confusion, etc.

So, I think that you should calm down and you may use ibuprofen for the headaches.

Only in cases of above mentioned symptoms you should see your Doctor.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
