Headaches and dizziness can occur after a head injury and can take time to be cured because of concussion injury. If you had bleeding from the ears you must check with an ear, nose and throat person to rule out a vestibular component; usually these symptoms decrease after 3-6 months time. Until then you can meet a neurologist who may prescribe medicines for your headaches to be taken sos.
An mri and cat scan can be normal in concussion injuries. In certain injuries the optic nerve may be contused leading to reduced vision. This can also improve with time once the edema settles. Reduced vision is another reason for headaches. You should be wearing proper glasses or lens.
