Post Concussion Syndrome

I fell about 4 weeks ago.  I tripped over a desk drawer I had forgotten to close.  I hit a hardwood floor with all my weight and from a standing position.  I never passed out and can remember everything that happened.  I did however have a headache for the rest of the day and night.  About 2 weeks later I started having headaches and a few days after the headache started my left arm went numb for about 1 minute.  I was sleeping but woke up and noticed it was numb and like a dead weight.  My first thought was a stroke since stroke is extremely prevailent on both sides of my family.  I am continuing to have severe headaches and went to the ER per my doctor and had a CT scan.  Nothing showed up and then a follow-up visit to my primary today.  The seem to think the headaches and fatigue are probably post concussion syndrome.  I'm not totally convienced that I did not have a TIA.  I was told I probably slept on my arm wrong and it was asleep, but there was no tingling like normally when your arm goes to sleep.  My question is can post concussion syndrome start two weeks after the injury?  I see a neuro in 1 1/2 weeks but I'm really scared something might happen before then.  Any clarification you could give me on post concussion syndrome would be appreciated.
