Sore back after a fall. Chances of concussion?

I fell about 7 weeks ago -- off a ladder about 2-1/2 feet , landed on my rear end, whiplashed back and hit my head on the concrete. I had no symptoms of a concussion at the time, but I had a dent there for about a week and it was sore to the touch. With all this business about Hillary Clinton my husband has been bugging me about it -- is it something I should be concerned about?

Hi... as of now if you have symptoms like headache, vomiting or seizures then you should be bothered. Since it's already 7 weeks and if you have no symptoms no need to press the panic button. Take care.
