My 11 year old son was playing football and fell back and

Resolved Question:

hi my 11 year old son was playing football and fell back and banged his head and then had a seizure for his pals say 30 secs to 1 minute. then about 3 months later he jumped off a fence and banged his head. he was fine straight after it but 10 mins later he had no recollection of the last 10 minutes. Then last week he was sent home from school with dizzy spells. I was thinking about a mri scan as it has been really worrying me. what would you recommend?
Kind Regards
