Approximately one month ago, I accidentally slammed the lower left part of the back of my head, just above my neck. I sat down on the couch too far back and too quickly, and slammed it on the wooden window sill. I did not lose consciousness. I did feel a pounding sensation in my ear on that left side, and pain in the area I hit. The skin did not break. I had moderate pain in that area for about a week and half to two weeks. After that I didn't notice the pain anymore. I haven't had any recent trauma to that area, yet I noticed last night before bed that the same area is again tender to the touch and has a dull pain in it. It has only been one month, so I was wondering if this will just take more time to go away on its own, or if its something I should have checked out. Thank you so much.
