I'd have it checked out too. Whether it is caused by a tantrum or a seizure, if he fell and hit his head that hard it could cause a concussion. Definitely keep trying to find out why this is happening, but don't completely rule out the tantrum possibility. Some kids do have violent tantrums, and when they are too young to communicate it's really difficult. After a tantrum induced concussion my nephew had to wear a helmet for a while; he was between 12 and 18 months at the time. At almost 4 he's still quite a handful, but it is getting better.
I hope whatever is going on with your son is resolved soon. GL!

if you really think it is more then just tamtrums then I would take him to a DR that is going to do and EEG or refer you to a neurologist.
My DD never had seizures when she was young, she just started having them at the age of 8. Somethings to look for if they are seizures is, he will be nonresponsive, if you try to get his attention or talk to him he will not be able to respond or anything. how is he afterwards, sometimes kids are tired or confused afterwards. You can also get more information at http://www.epilepsyfoundation.org/.
I guess if it was me I would push to have him checked out because you don't want to wait if he is having seizures.
