Continuous dizziness, fatigue post a concussion due to fall of heavy object on the head. Had taken enough rest. What should be done?

I had a heavy metal chair fall on my head from overhead shelf in garage. I was hit so hard I was waiting for something terrible to happen. It did not so I put ice on it and went to work. I was a little dizzy, and had mild headache . I worked the next day but felt extremely tired. As night wore on I got extremely dizzy, which gave me a headache and made me nausea . I had a concussion when I was younger and it felt similar so I went to E.R. They didn t do an X-ray or scan but told me had concussion and had to stay home and rest for 3days. My 3days are up and I am still dizzy and extremely tired. Now what should I do? I have a follow up with my regular dr on monday

Dear friend,
welcome to HCM.
If you no more have nausea, vomitting, severe headache, giddiness, drowsiness,
you need not worry much and rest. it will resolve.
can take simple painkillers like t. acetaminophen 2-3 times a day.
pl. keep me posted and get well soon.
