Is it a sign of a concussion if you get hit in the head with a pipe and you feel sick to your stomach after?

In brief: Possibly

Abdominal distress after head injury may represent a post concussion symptom, especially if also associated with headache, confusion and tiredness.
It results from an area of the brainstem that is kinked at the level of the of the nausea and vomiting center and the area known to trigger migraine symptoms. Wear hard hats in construction sites and most important protect your head even with a helm.
