Thank you for posting your query.

The symptoms suggest that your daughter had a mild head injury. In that case, the symptoms should go away in a weeks time.

However, if the headache persists, or if she develops vomiting, increased severity of headaches, blurred or double vision, weakness of arm or legs or seizures, then, you should take her to a doctor, and if possible, get a CT scan of the head done.

As of now, there is no need to worry.

I hope it helps.

Best wishes,
