Tightness on forehead to top of head. Histroy of hit on head.Serious?

Hi, a few days ago I hit my head, it wasn't a particularly hard bump but it left me feeling a bit dazed for a few minutes, and i've just noticed now that if I put pressure on a certain area of my forehead I can feel a "tightness" (best way I can describe it) running up my head from where I touched and to the centre of the top of my head

Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that your symptoms do not suggest nay serious underlying head injury.

There is a possibility of minor nerve damage of the nerve in the skin, and on applying pressure, the tingling or tightness is running along the course of the nerve. It should subside in a few days time on its own.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
