In brief: HEAD-ACHE

If all you are experiencing is pain at the site of trauma & no other symptoms, an ER visit is probably not necessary.
But if other symptoms develop (nausea/vomiting, vision, speech, movement difficulties) and/or pain worsens, an ER visit would be recommended.

In brief: Yes.

If you are worried it is always best to be seen after being hit on the head.
