Headache,neck discomfort & dizziness are common symptoms post head injuries, but the tremors are not. I recommend consulting a neurologist for evaluation and for following you through your convalescence.

A concussion is an acute injury and lingering post concessional symptoms may take 4-6 weeks to clear. Your "small tremor" could be due to medications, thyroid problems, essential tremor, or emotional stress secondary to the trauma. If this continues, have a neurological consultation.
