Should I be concerned for a concussion?

This is going to be a long story..

Back on the 9th of June, a small Roku remote landed on my head, later on that day I was in the shower and I patted my head with the bottom of my wrist in the same area the remote landed to straighten my hair out. I did experience nausea and a few headaches and even some memory loss here and there, but I'm not totally sure if that had anything to do with the remote landing on my head or my patting my head. Why I'm anxious all over this is because I came across several of YouTube videos about people's experiences with concussions with got me worried sick because at the time I was trying to use those to declare it I had a concussion or not. I also read concussion related articles from sites like CognitiveFx, but the information from there just fear mongering me because it would say stuff like "even minor concussions can cause long term memory loss", which really scared me. Not to mention I came across statements with people saying stuff like, "even the smallest hits can lead to a concussion", "minor concussions can be dangerous as severe concussions", and some even went on to say that "you can't always trust doctors, they don't know anything about you and can misdiagnose you" Even Snapchat MyAI and ChatGPT said fear mongering stuff about concussions such as "it's possible to get long term memory loss from a small remote landing on your head".

I didn't even bother to ask Quora about my situation, because the last time I asked something like this on that website I got answers that were either trolling or fear mongering. Now I did ask the question on the /AskDocs subreddit and got helpful answers but sadly I made the foolish decision on spamming rather than being clear to the physicians on there, and I hope I could find a way to reach out to any physician on that subreddit some time soon. I just hate the fact that I feel like a burden for asking this question. Every time someone reassures me about this, my mind convinces me that I can't go with what they say and should keep being obsessive over this.
