Today is not my day...

Last night I was at a fancy themed event when a huge decorative archway detached from the wall and fell onto my head while I was sitting down. The pain was not so severe then, but I don't remember actually be hit, only the noise before, and a minute later when it was pulled off of me, and I found the whole thing hysterically funny and laughed a lot. It wasn't so bad earlier today, but slowly my headache has gotten worse and worse and now my neck is throbbing as well and I'm incredibly irritable, which is unusual for me. 

I'd see a doctor, but I don't drive, it's 10:54, and my roommate who does drive isn't here tonight. My parents know about this and made me promise to call them if it gets worse, but they live two hours away and they're both teachers who have to work tomorrow. 

Am I being stupid to try and wait this out until tomorrow when I can just walk to the clinic in town? I've never had a concussion before (I'm assuming that's my problem) and I'm not sure if this is normal or not...

edit- There is no public transportation in rural Indiana. Literally none.  
  
editedit- In looking for a friend to drive me, I discovered my RA's uncle? Totally a doctor. We chatted over the phone and he says I can wait until tomorrow. 

...and using the nearest cab company would cost me around $120 to get to the nearest hospital. I'm not kidding when I say I live in the middle of nowhere
