Less likely related: They are less likely to be related. You may have a post-concussive/traumatic headache. If the headache is accompanied by other symptoms (difficulty concentrating, irritability) then you might have post-concussion syndrome. If the headache doesn't clear or gets worse, see your physician. http://www.brainline.org/content/2008/12/headaches-after-head-injuries-8212-post-traumatic-headaches.html
