I'm nowhere near a doctor, but if you didn't black out, see stars, and don't feel any different today or the next couple days, I'm pretty sure you didn't get a concussion. I've gotten hit hard in the head a handful of times and outside of my own paranoia, absolutely no concussion symptoms.
On the other hand, you could have gotten yourself a nice case of whiplash, which I've definitely had, and it sucks pretty bad if untreated. Limited movement, lots of pain, headaches, other issues. I had a few weeks of physical therapy with heat therapy, massage, and exercises. The pain, stiffness, and headaches went away and my neck flexibility is about 95% better (good enough).
But yeah, if you have any kind of lingering symptoms, get it checked out.
