Hello.

It is difficult to say if there is any internal injury. You should get an evaluation from a neurologist as soon as possible. Vomiting and dizziness could be signs of increased pressure in the skull. You might need a screening head scan to rule out any internal bleeding.

hmmm, yes there is obviously sometthing wrong but assuming that your the same age as me( 15 or roundabouts) then it might just be puberty tbh mate. At the end of the day, its better to check with a doctor as it might be a tumour or something but dont worry because im 95% certain that its just puberty being mean lol x
