Any blow to the head can cause a concussion. Brain damage can happen from a concussion if it's severe enough but headaches aren't common afterwards. Did you feel sleepiness or disorientation after the head-butt, have difficulty with co-ordination or balance? Did you feel an ache in the neck or loss of range of motion of your head.

Did you go to the hospital after the headbutt?

No, you're not going to die from a hit to the head. That's a movie cliche. If the headaches keep up for more than two weeks go see a doctor. Otherwise you're fine.

Headbutts
I have gotten a headbutt from my husband, but it was all my fault he says it was my fault it happened. I had gotten a big goose egg on my forehead, and it also cracked my skull and had two black eyes from it. I have never been to a doctor about it, but am curious to find out if their could be any damage.
