Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
that is good you feel fine.
it is always best to get trauma to your head evaluated by a doctor
but it sounds like you will be fine and safe to go to sleep.
you should see a doctor to assess the cut on your head to make sure it is healing properly.
let me know if you have questions.
