Hi there and thanks so much for posting this question.
Feel free to post in the Neurology Forum and also I am happy that you are seeing a Neurologist on the 20th.

Yes you are referring to important symptoms and need to be taken into consideration. My recommendation is that if you feel those strong symptoms you should not operate any machinery. I hope you can get to your family safely in some other transportation or maybe someone can drive you.

A head injury is any trauma or concussion  that injures the scalp, skull, or brain. The injury may be only a minor bump on the skull or a serious brain injury.

Head injury can be either closed or open.

Learning to recognize a serious head injury and give basic first aid can save someone's life.

Remember that you should Get medical assistance right away if the following symptoms occur:

Drowsiness
Abnormal Behavior
Neck Stiffness
Loss of consciousness
Vomiting
