Head injury and occipital bone plate injury, pressure, headaches, have subdural hematoma. Help

I hit my head about a week and a half ago. I hit right on my occipital bone plate and I had to hold pressure there for a few minutes thereafter in order to see. I kind of laughed it off and it didn't hurt too bad the rest of that day. But ever since I hit my head, I've been having recurring headaches. Sometimes they go away after I take my hair out of a ponytail and it usually goes away for a little while if I take an Aleve. I just wondered if I needed to see a doctor on the case of having a subdural hematoma. It's kind of scary that I'm having headaches on and off almost everyday.. Please and thank you for any help you can offer.

For subdural hematoma ofcourse you need to consult your doctor as it have better prognosis if properly managed.In your case it may be the chronic subdural hematoma as it develops slowly and it may stop by itself but it will cause enough damage at that time.Symptoms may develop slowly as the bleed increases.So dont neglect to consult your doctor as proper treatment is needed.Thank you for consulting HCM.Have a good health.
