Be seen: You may have sustained a concussion, which should be evaluated promptly. Please be seen in order to have a diagnostic assessment and treatment plan created.

Yes: Dizziness, headache, nausea and vomiting after head injury definitely require doctor attention. Even with dryer door hit this is possible concussion. Still need evaluation and treatment.
Dr. Susan Rhoads
Family Medicine 39 years experience
Yes, go!: If your headache is not relieved by over the counter pain relievers taken as prescribed on the bottle only, and/or your thinking is not clear, you need to go to the ER. Good luck!
