HEAD'S UP!: From what you describe regarding the mechanism of injury, and your current absence of symptoms, it does not appear that your sustained a concussion-force injury. If however you develop symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, difficulty concentrating, light/noise sensitivity, nausea/vomiting, then you should follow up with your doctor.
