Head injury: Even a trivial head injury can cause headaches for several days. Worrisome symptoms would be severe headache, nausea,vomiting, visual disturbances, unusual drowsiness, balance problem or confusion. If none of these are present I feel you'll be ok without being evaluated by a physician.
