Having headache and nausea after being hit on the head. Chances of head injury?

hi, I hit my head about 9 days ago. I hit the first of my head and then proceeded to hit the back of my head when falling. I was disoriented, had a headache , little tiny bit of nauseousness. I chose not to go to the doctor and wait and see if I still had a headache the next day. The next day it felt like I had pressure but no other symptoms. Now I am trying out for a hockey team and we just did the Nike Sparq yoyo test and I have a headache, could this headache be a result of that hit? Should I see a doctor?

Irrespective of whether this headache is related or unrelated to that hit, you should see a doctor for your headache. Disorientation, nausea and headache after the hit are indicators that the it was fairly severe. before joining hockey team you must get yourself examined and rule out serious injury inside the skull.
Good luck.
