Lost consciousness, sore head, cough. Will I be fine?

Hi - I banged the back of my head quite badly 44 hours ago - did not loose conciousness or anything but was sick once immediately afterwards. The back of my head is sore if i touch it or lie on it - otherwise have a mild headache occasionally. But last night my right eye was weeping all night and is weeping today - I have now developed a cough so may be a cold and conicdental to the bang on the head

Respected Sir
Thanks for your query to us.
1. If it was really severe and you have persistent headache with tenderness, I would advise you to seek medical help. Sometime this kind of trauma may result in hemorrhage between the skull bone and brain and can lead to problems later on.
2. A cough is co-incidental but a running nose is important in this scenario and should be seen by a physician to rule out leakage of cerebrospinal fluid.
