In brief: Yes

Migraines typically do not last for weeks.
With a history of trauma, it is important to be evaluated for possible bleeding around the brain.

In brief: Common problem

People who suffer from migraines often develop prolonged migraines after a concussoion; concussions often 'set off' migraines.
Sometimes special medicne such as amantadine is needed to help control the pain. Check with your neuro-rehab speicalist for proper care. Remember the best treatment fo concussion is rest (no sports, no academic work etc).
