Doctor :   Hi. Thanks for your query. Noted your history of being hit on the head by a low-lying strong branch of a tree. You have little dizziness, small bump and tenderness in this area. There are no other symptoms. Head injury as this is called is to be taken as a serious injury if you have any of the symptoms other than the absolute normal going. Since you have dizziness, I would advise you to have a CT scan of the brain and the clinical examination by a Doctor for any signs. Once this is declared normal, then only one can say there is nothing that is serious. I hope this answer helps you.
