Is it normal for pain behind my ear after hit on top of my head a week ago?
Five days ago during a soccer game, I got hit on the top right side of my head by a guy with his head. When it first happened, I saw stars and felt dizzy but it went away after a minute and was only left with pain that felt better when I put pressure on it. The next day I started feeling pain on the same side of my head behind the top of my ear. It hurts to touch my scalp or lay on that side. My head still hurts where I got hit in the head but not near like the pain behind the top of my head? Should I be concerned?
