Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

Judging from the symptoms you have described, you probably have a concussion.  Usually concussions heal relatively quickly on their own.  But you should definitely see your doctor if your symptoms worsen over time.  

Tylenol should be taken for the pain.  Do not take Advil, Motrin or Ibuprofen because it could make the bruising worse.
