Hi, I am Neuro Doctor, an American Board Certified Neurologist with vast clinical experience and I am very glad to help you with your health question.
First I will try to gather some additional information from you to help me in finalizing my answer to your question;
1) Is there any possibility that he had hit his head, or is that possibility completely ruled out?
2) Has he experienced these type of migraine attacks before associated with vomiting like this?
3) Can he move all his limbs well & equal on both sides?
When your time permits please answer the above questions for me, I will go through these additional information and then follow up with you at the earliest.
Best regards,
Neuro Doctor

Hi, thanks for these additional information.
Coming to the discussion;
It is actually better an ambulance is called and he is taken to the emergency room as soon as possible because he needs a thorough neurological examination and certain relevant investigations like a CAT scan of the brain & spine etc and this way we can confidently rule out any neurological injuries (head injuries, spine injuries etc). I don’t want to scare you guys, I am not telling he has definitely sustained any neurological injuries but with the nature of this incident where he landed on the back and head & the subsequent symptoms he is having so it is better to get him checked by a doctor as soon as possible and this way we are on the safer side.
Once again I recommend calling an ambulance so that he can be taken to the near by hospital as soon as possible and this is the most prudent approach now rather than managing this at the home itself.
Please go through the above information and let me know if you have any further questions. And if you feel you have received the answer to your question please rate me to compensate me for the time and effort put by me in answering your question.
Best regards,
Neuro Doctor
