Can a single or repeated light hit to the head that is mild enough to not shake the head but is followed by a mild headache or dizziness cause brain damage?

Does the brain need to hit the skull to be damaged? Is it possible to estimate when the symptoms are just sensations and when they speak for brain damage?

    Moe, I edited the question in the way I believe is more answerable. If you don't agree you can revert the edit or further edit it yourself. Try to include the link of some article you've read, maybe about "types of brain injury" or "concusion." – Jan Oct 16 '19 at 14:43
