Sharp pain in the temple area after a concussion. Frequent headaches. Need immediate medical attention?

I suffered a mild concussion in June 2011 and have recently been having severe sharp yet brief pain in my right temple. I had hit my head during a fall right on the bone above my right temple and had pressure all about my head. These headaches came and went for about 3 months and then nothing... now they are back. Should I see my doctor asap?

Thank you for posting your query.

These symptoms are suggestive of mild head injury and the symptoms should subside in a few days.

You can take ibuprofen or diclofenac tablets for pain relief.

At present there is no need to worry. However, if you develop vomiting,or double vision, or fits, you should see a doctor and get a CT scan of the head done.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any further information.

Best wishes,
