Hello,

I hit my head on a corner piece of drywall quite hard last night while trying to put in a lightbulb. The area, on the left side of my head, is very tender to the touch. It's also quite painful. Should I have additional cause for concern? I have a headache but I occasionally suffer from them anyway. Thank you.
