Lower back injury. Nausea, weakness. Should I be concerned?

Hey Doc, Not sure if i should be asking you this question... The other day I fell on my back in the shower, i crqacked my back of a ledge, it was my lower back, Since, ive been Nausous, and I feel kind of weak, and today, I feel like something just isnt right.. Should i be concerned? Can this be a problem with my kidneys or something? Or is it more likely its just the discomfort of the pain playing tricks on me? I dunno if i should be concerned or if im just being a hypochondriac... My backs starting to feel much better however the nausea symptoms are getting worse

Head injury is coomon cause of nausea after a trauma.
You may need CTscan head to rule out any bleed inside your brain.
