Head injury. Soreness, nausea. Should I go to ER?

Hello. I hit my head nearly two days ago, near the top on the right side. When I hit my head, there were no blackouts, no headaches , no blurred vision , no difficulties with speaking or having problems with walking or thinking; just soreness. Also I would like to mention that my pupils are exactly the same. This afternoon, I felt a little bit nauseous which lasted for nearly three minutes. I gagged twice before I felt better. I contacted my insurance s 24/7 Nurse Hotline, and the nurse said to watch out for these symptoms like a severe headache, problems walking, speaking, or thinking or passing out. If any of the these symptoms should appear, then I must go to the ER immediately. Because it s a holiday (January 1), I was informed by the nurse to contact my doctor s office tomorrow morning to schedule an appointment to be evaluate. Should I go to the ER anyways or visit an Urgent Care or just wait to see my doctor as soon as possible?

The nurse you spoke to on the hotline is correct, if you have any of those symptoms then you should go to an ER, otherwise you may wait and make a regular appointment with your doctor
