User avatar Hi Nickchatt,

It's difficult to say for sure how much damage may have been done. Most likely there was not a significant amount of damage but if your headaches are ongoing I would suggest you see your doctor.

It is reasonable to try some pain control medicines that would be used for a typical headache if you have not tried this.

Best wishes.
