Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 1 year ago.

If your CT and MRI both were absolutely normal then it is possible that your symptoms are due to cerebral concussion. After a traumatic injury there is a rise in the intracranial pressure and there is jarring of rain within the skull. Usually the effect of concussion settles with time but at time medicines are used for symptomatic relief .You can also take an opinion from the neurologist on this as well but most likely it is a concussion and it will settle with time .

Good luck
