Thank you for posting your query.

You seem to have suffered a severe impact over the head due to the fall.

Since you had drowsiness and headache is still going on, it is better to for you to undergo a CT scan of the brain. It is possible that it may not show anything serious, but it is always safe to exclude a bleed or fracture.

Best wishes,
