Brief Answer:
Upload reports and provide more details

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
CT imaging is required in case of severe injury leading to loss of consciousness, seizures, bleeding via ear or nose, weakness.
Late CT is indicated if gradual increase in headache, weakness or drowsiness occurs.
What symptoms you are having at present?
You can continue medications for headache. Dose may be increased if needed.
Upload any previous reports or prescription if available.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
