    "I got up quickly and I bumped my head on the wall" is perfectly idiomatic and natural.As bigbird said any may be used in most circumstances. An idiomatic simile used about banging one's head would be "Trying to talk sense to him is like banging one's head against a brick wall"; i.e. is both painful and shows little result.
