I had a concussion more times than I can remember. The best thing to do is go to a docter. (p.s. I'm 15 so I don't know about a lot.)

Kateh,

If you hit your head and have any type of funny feeling or people around you notice you acting abnormal.  Stumbling, asking questions repeatedly, pupils look odd...you need to go to the doctor/ER immediately.  You have a concussion.  They can be very serious.  "Sleeping it off" is the last thing you should do.  You might not wake up.  A concussion is a bruise on your braing and it can start to swell.  You need to be kept awake and see a doctor.  Have you ever thought of wearing a helmet?  I have, after many seizures on the tiled kitchen floor, driveway, and seizing and falling down the basement stairs purchased a hockey helmet that is multiple impact and concussion rated.  It has saved my head from injury on multiple times now.  It may not be a fashion statement, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.  LOL

Your headache may be partly from the seizure.  I once had a seizure in the bathroom and hit my head on the toilet on the way down.  I have to tell you that my head has never hurt so bad in my life, but I did the same thing.  Just take some tylonal and try to get some sleep, if the headache persists talk to a doctor.  But in my experience the pain went away after getting some sleep.  Good luck and I hope all is well.

You might wanna go check yourself out at hospital. I had a seizure on thursday while waiting for the bus, and fell like a sack of spuds on the floor. i have the black eye and cut to prove it. OOOuuuch.
