Head injuries: Are important to identify. Though most bumps to the head are just a transiently painful unpleasantness, sometimes a mild concussion can result. All this depends on the mechanism of injury, so clinical assessment afterward is a good idea. Even "minor" concussions can have clinically significant consequences. Dizziness from inner ear problems can also be trauma related. See an MD for evaluation ASAP ...Read more

Hit my head a month ago and bumped it again yesterday and got dizzy head is sensitive still and concussion was last month worry?

Post concussive: After a concussion it is not unusual to have some persistent headache, dizziness, vertigo or general malaise. So long as the symptoms are getting better slowly, I wouldn't worry too much. If increased activity worsens the symptoms, slow down and see if doing a little less helps improve your symptoms. If you are getting worse, go see your doctor!! ...Read more

Go see your doctor: Even though you didn't hit your head, you fell hard enough to break three ribs.
