Child fell off bed. Nose bleed, headache. Bad behavior due to head injury?

Dear doctor, My 6year olddaughter fell off her bed yesterday when I left the room for a moment. I heard a thump and then found her on the floor holding her nose and blood from her nose. She complained of her forehead hurting but no visible bruise . Today, I picked her up from school due to saying she had a headache . Now she s home but acting really disobedient and doing everything to make me angry. Really bad, could this terrible behavior be due to hitting her head?

Nasal bleeding is a danger sign and needs to be evaluated by a doctor.
Irritability or behavior change and headache are symptoms of minor head injury.
Headache itself can also make a child irritable.
It would be better to get her examined by a doctor for any underlying brain injury.
