Thank you for posting your query.

Symptoms of headache and nausea (vomiting sensation) are related to the head injury. Mostly, it may not be a serious internal injury and the symptoms should subside in a day or two.

You may take analgesics such as diclofenac or ibuprofen for pain relief.

If the symptoms persist, yous should see a doctor and get a CT scan of the head done.
