Hit by a vehicle, have bruising to jaw, knees, abrasion to elbow and cheek, lump on the chin and back of neck, increased forgetfulness. Normal?

Hi there. My name is Karina & Im a 24 year old female. I was hit by a vehicle 5 days ago while Iwas crossing the pedestrian crossing. Injuries I sustained was bruising/ swelling to the R Jaw, Abrasion to R Cheek, Bruising/Swelling to both knees, Abrasion to left elbow & probable neck sprain . Most swelling has since settled however I do have a lump on my right chin , which I thought may just be bruising. It is quite tender to touch.I have also discovered a small lump on the right side/back of my neck, which is tender to touch. Im getting the impression it is a vein . I was wondering if this would be caused by the impact of the accident? Also I am very forgetful. I can not remember what I did today at work, or what I did yesterday. I am extremely exhausted. Is this all considered normal for someone who has been hit by a vehicle? Am I stressing over nothing? I did see a doctor after the accident however I was not x-rayed or examined any further, which I do feel is inappropriate for someone who has been hit by a car. I dont know if I was knocked out at all. I dont actually remember being hit by the car, or much of what happened after being hit by the car. Hopefully this information helps. Many thanks

even though you are confused you are hit by the car or not.. dont worry if you are waling normal and can do all the task then you are completely fine, now regarding the lump... apply ice and will go off in few days.. for the memory eat fresh walnut around 50gms daily helps enhance memory and engage yourself in some physical sports it helps in increasing concentration hence increase in memory power. hope this information will be helpful
