Neuro: If you had a loss of consciousness then you should be evaluated immediately at an emergency department. If headache increases especially if associated with increased nausea or vomiting call 911 immediately. Otherwise, continue to monitor and you can take tylenol (acetaminophen) for headache and rest for the next day or so.
