Annoying headache, pain on moving eyes side to side post a day of hitting on the head. Cause?

Hello I was playing soccer on Sunday and I was back on defense for a corner kick. The Ball came in and I jumped to head the ball clear connecting with the ball not on my forehead but towards the top/back of my head. I felt fine until later Sunday evening, all Monday, and now today I have a very annoying headache . It does not hurt when I shake my head but more so a lot of pain when i move my eyes side to side or up and down. What could this be??

Neurologist 's  Response
Headaches at times of sports injury are mostly due to muscle contraction or spasm. But that will not explain the pain on eye movements. So other possibilities need consideration like any problem in vessels supplying the brain. I would recommend doing MRI brain with MRA just to rule out any of the sinister possibilities.
