First Aid/Head injury

Question
"Yesterday two nested glass Pyrex storage containers fell from a cabinet and hit me in the left temple. I had a mild headache and was slightly nauseous. I never passed out or experienced altered mental state.  Today the area is sore, I still have a mild headache and  slightly dizzy.  What symptoms would indicate that medical care is needed?"

Answer
Hi Roxy,

Sorry about your accident.  It can be scary when your body reacts to an injury and you do not know what is normal and what is abnormal.  I always recommend head injuries be checked immediately.  There are so many things that can go wrong from mild to severe.  Please do get checked out.  I am sorry I am not of more help.
