Not likely: Unlikely to have concussion from the scenario you describe. If you develop headache, nausea, confusion.. see your Dr. Meanwhile, review this article: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/concussion/basics/symptoms/con-20019272
Dr. William Ernoehazy
Emergency Medicine 36 years experience
Not likely: Your injury seems unlikely to produce a concussion; not enough force in the blow as described. Signs of a concussion after a head blow? Headache Loss of consciousness Confusion Amnesia around the time of injury Dizziness "seeing stars" Ringing in ears Nausea/vomiting Slurred speech Slow thinking If you have several of these, going to an emergency department for exam and testing is a good idea.
