See doctor immediate: while likely concussion, u need to see doctor immediately to rule out other serious causes such as bleeding in head.

The circumstances of how you hit your head also matters. Did you fall from standing and do that, were you standing up and hit your head. I agree that it is most likely concussion, however a slow bleed known as a subdural hepatoma can do that and should be ruled out with a CT. As the other docs have suggested, visit the ED ASAP!
