Brief Answer: better to get it evaluated Detailed Answer: Hello, I am sorry about the injury your grandma suffered. Ever since then she has headache. Did she take simple analgesics like Panadol after the injury? Whatever be the condition, in view of her age of 70, I would suggest that you get her evaluated. A complete physical examination, with mental state evaluation, and blood pressure recording would suffice to rule out major injuries. Hope this helps you. Wish your grandma, early recovery. Regards,
