Lightheadedness, sleepiness, tiredness in eye after being struck on the head by a door. Matter of concern?

My head was struck 3 days ago by the bottom corner of a cupboard door as I quickly rose from picking up a glass from the floor. It did bleed and I felt a little lightheaded the rest of that day. In the days that have followed, I am increasingly sleepy, while getting good 8 hour sleep with my CPAP. This morning, I m also feeling pain in the area of the strike as well as a tired feeling in my left eye? Concern?

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
You have suffered injury by door onto the head about three days back. The complaints of light headedness, sleepiness, tiredness may not indicate concussion head injury. The specific symptoms associated with concussion head injury are nausea, slurred speech, memory loss, dizziness. If you have any of these symptoms following head injury you need further evaluation and treatment. Since from the history you had bleeding from the injured site, you need to consult your surgeon to look for any lacerated wound which may require suturing.
Thank you
