User avatar Hello -

While the episode of vomiting concerns me, I'm taking it you never lost consciousness. You still could have suffered a mild concussion (usually the reason for isolated vomiting after a blow to the head) although you describe few other symptoms of concussion. If the preorbital headache, which you relate to lack of sleep, doesn't go away and/or if you have any more vomiting, nausea, or, especially, any visual disturbances, you then should see someone urgently. Otherwise by now you've probably had all this resolve.

Please follow up with us here and let us know how things have gone since the accident. Best of luck to you.
