Are you suffering with Concussion?
Have you had a blow to the head as a result of:

as a result of impact to the head. 
Symptoms of concussion may include:

> Confusion
> Ongoing headache
> Nausea
> Drowsiness
> Loss of consciousness from which the person then recovers
> Change in behaviour
> Balance problems/difficulty walking
