Post-traumatic: Your symptoms are not atypical for a closed head injury. Much of this should resolve over a maximum of 4-6 weeks, but if dizziness or headache is persistent, see your doctor for further interventions.

CONCUSSION: It is best to discuss this with your Neurologist who knows your medical history. If you are uncomfortable with your Dr. consult with another for a 2nd opinion.
