Teething: Sounds more likely to be the teething, it is now 24 hours past the injury. If she has not been vomiting, did not black out, no difficult arousing her, no abnormal movements, I suspect her irritability is more from teething. Give her some ibuprofen for her teething and see if she settles down.
