Doubt it. Without passing out immediately, memory loss, dizziness immediately I can't buy into a concussion. Headache is common to the point of being intense from minor trauma. If you would sleep better having an exam, go see your doc and take a list of all related symptoms.

Perhaps you are best advised to get your anxiety handled. Brief cognitive behavioral therapy would help
