In brief: Get checked

If your brain has not fully recovered from a concussion, you can continue to have ongoing problems.
After a concussion, your brain needs complete rest. If you place strain on your brain before it has healed, your symptoms can worsen. It would be good to get evaluated by a neurologist.

In brief: Post-concussion synd

This headache is due to the post concussion syndrome, which should improve with time.
Migralex (rapidly dissolving combination of magnesium with aspirin) can help for acute pain, daily magnesium for prevention.
