Hit on the head, severe headaches on cramped area, get headache immediately after a bit on the head. Serious?

I hit my head last summer a few times on a boat in the cramped spaces i had a pretty bad headache but it went away eventually before i got really worried and was only left with a bump. Now whenever i hit my head even a little bit i get a headache. When i think about it being something serious or focus on it i even get a little head tension which may be caused by health anxieties but i am not sure. Could this be serious and what should i do?

Thank you for posting your query.

The chance of your headache being due to any serious illness is unlikely.

You have head injuries, which were very minor, and I don't expect them to cause symptoms after such a long time.

Please stop worrying, and you would improve.

If you want total confirmation, you could get a brain scan done (but it is not mandatory at present).

Best wishes,
