Headaches after hit to head

I hit my head quite hard on Thursday, it was enough for a lump to appear straight away. Since then I have had a headache. The dr said to only worry if I get dizzy.

Im at home again today with a migraine type headache in my eyes.

Im not dizzy and dont feel sick. Will these just stop soon?

I would seek further medical advice, it's been several days since the accident.

Should I go back to my gp? They made me feel like I wasted their time on Monday sad

Does it have to be the same doctor?
Try an out of hours or walk in centre (or whatever there's in the UK these days).
Or go and insist. A constant headache is at best annoying.

Could be concussion I would go back to go on Monday

Persistent headache since a head injury requires A&E assessment, according to NICE guidelines.

No point going to GP or walk-in centre.

If you call 111 I'm pretty sure they will advise you to go to A&E, based on what you've said here.

Sounds like concussion. I'd get it checked it out if I were you. I wouldn't go back to the same GP, walk-in or a&e would be better.

Thanks all. The headaches are getting better now. I have only taken paracetamol once so far today!

Glad you are on the mend op. I had concussion many years ago, it wasn't pleasant.

Thank you. Im surprised at how much it affected me. I definitely wont be doing it again!
