Go see your Doc: There are many potential injuries from such a collision, and you may have a serious intracranial injury such as a subdural hematoma. While I hope it is just coincidence that you have a head ache now, you should see your primary care doctor or go to an emergency care center for evaluation.

BAD Idea. Very bad.: Dilaudid for oral use is meant for oral use. There are many potential complications from using oral medication intravenously, and these can be catastrophic. In fact, I am skeptical that the medication does not work orally, as I suspect it does not work as rapidly as you would like, meaning you get a quicker onset when you inject it. STOP NOW. You need to see a pain medication specialist ASAP.

Well: Talk to your doctor. Does he or she think it is okay for you to exercise? If the answer is yes - do it! unless you are 7'11" tall (bmi-24.9) or more) you are on path to disaster. With your doctor's help you can lose weight. If your doctor has cleared you to exercise, you are only giving your health a greater chance to deteriorate by delaying. Procrastination is very dangerous to you.
