Hi! I was just...

Hi! I was just reading an answer about hitting your head. I fell off of my bed and hit the back of my head just above my neck. I have a bit of a headache, but I don't know if I should go to the hospital to check it out

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

It literally happened 15 minutes ago

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No everything is fine
