In brief: Concussion

This is frequent with head concussions.
You should report this to your doctor and ask for further instructions. In general you should be resting and avoid physical exercise. It may take a few weeks to heal the brain. Stay in close contact with your doctor and have someone check in with you frequently over the next 24hours to be sure you are not worse.

In brief: Not necessarily

Dizziness can be a part of post-concussion syndrome.
If your dizziness, headaches or any other symptoms worsen, it would be good to be re-evaluated. Your brain needs complete rest after a concussion.
