or hospital emergency room for a reevaluation. The dripping and clogged nose is a strong sign of a basilar skull fracture causing leakage of cerebrospinal fluid, rather then just a "simple concussion". The fever may be signs of an infection. Have someone else drive you or call 911, do not go by yourself, but DO GO IMMEDITATLY!

Many post-traumatic headache patients frequently have accompanying symptoms of post-traumatic syndrome and should be referred for appropriate management to a headache specialist.

If you are describing a recent head injury which has now resulted in a fever, nausea and vomiting as well as dripping from your nose you should be seen today. A sinus infection could certainly cause most of those symptoms and may be coincidental to head injury BUT it first must be proven that it is not related to the head injury. If your primary can not see you today go to walk - in or ER.
