bike accident

My 6 year old son is in the hospital because he was hit by a car while riding his bike we were told he hasa cconcussion well we are on our 3rd day in the hospital and my son says his head hurts really bad on the inside and  it feels like hes getting a shot on his brain. My son is also unable to hold any food or liquids down the nurse will give him medicine to drink and as soon as he swallows it comes right back up what could be causing him to be having these systems?

Hello, I am SO sorry to hear this.  Your son has a brain injury.  The symptoms you describe go right along with that diagnosis.  He's in the right place for the doctors to observe him.  His brain needs time to heal.  It can take a few weeks or longer.  Most concussions do heal though.  

Was he wearing a helmet?
