Yes: Call healthtap to give more details and report any symptoms at this time. Also can call or see your primary care provider right away. Meanwhile watch for dizziness severe headache vomiting or delirium.

Doubtful: Unless the person in question is taking some form of blood thinner it is extremely unlikely. If the "tap" as you call it did not cause a loss of consciousness it is even less likely. If some form of focal neurologic symptom exists, weakness, numbness/tingling in one limb, you should see a doctor to have that checked.
