Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

A transient loss of consciousness or dizziness following a blow to the head is normal owing to concussion of brain.

But sudden throbbing and feeling of dizziness after 2 days of the initial episode indicates some issue inside.

A CT scan of the brain is needed to rule out any intracranial hemorrhage (epidural or subdural hematoma) causing the symptoms.

I suggest you to consult a Neurophysician for a detailed evaluation and management.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day

Symptoms of a head injury can occur right away or symptoms develop slowly over several hours or days. Even if the skull is not fractured, the brain can bang against the inside of the skull and be bruised. The head may look fine, but problems could result from bleeding or swelling inside the skull.

this although seems to be result of the heavy impact but I would advice you to be aware and you need to be examined by your neurologist and may be a CT SCAN to rule out any injury inside.

take care!
