Brief Answer:
Home rest and tylenol

Detailed Answer:
THank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

I am sorry to hear that you hit your head while at the grocery store. The type of trauma does not sound significant enough to be classified as a concussion as you did not report any loss of consciousness. For the pain I would recommend using tylenol or ibuprofen. I do recommend continued use of ice. If you develop nausea vomiting or have any neurological changes like confusion then I would recommend seeing your doctor immediately.

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
