Concussion: Yes very possible. Sleep a lot and use Tylenol (acetaminophen) or alleve for the headache. Eat healthy diet and rest till you can see a doctor

Head injuries: Even seemingly trivial head trauma can cause lightheadedness and headache without a concussion having occurred. However the vomiting episode is of some concern. Get examined if worsening headache, dizziness,visual disturbance, drowsiness and if any further vomiting occurs. The contusion injury of your nose was probably enough to cause your symptoms without a concussion having occurred,however.

Yes: Get to the ER right away for evaluation. Have someone drive you . Best of luck.

Post-concussion: The syndrome is a complex disorder in which various symptoms may occur include headache, dizziness and vomiting. If you are experiencing a confusion or amnesia, see your doctor immediately.
