headache and nausea possible concussion?

User Profile
I banged my head on a wall in the dark last night, and it didn\\\'t hurt too badly. This morning my dad said he woke me up at 7am but i have no memory of this and don't remember seeing him until 7.30 when he came to see what had happened to me. I had a semi painful headache all day today, have eaten only a few carrot sticks as i was nauseated and have felt quite tired all day. Also, i have now a large sore lump where i bumped my head. However, my balance, while very slightly wobbly, is pretty good and i have not vomited at all. Is it possible that i have a concussion, and would you suggest i see a doctor?

Thank you for your question.
You probably did have a cerebral concussion. You have to be examined by a doctor ASAP to make sure you don't have anything worse than that.
