Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

If there is loss of consciousness, altered mental state, vomiting, drowsiness or seizures/ fits after an episode of head trauma then it requires proper workup including brain imaging in the form of a CT brain.

Wishing you best of health

Thanks

A head injury is any sort of injury to your brain, skull, or scalp. This can range from a mild bump or bruise to a traumatic brain injury. Common head injuries include concussions, skull fractures, and scalp wounds. The consequences and treatments vary greatly, depending on what caused your head injury and how severe it is.
