    I got punched in the temple today during boxing sparring and I saw a few stars for a bit. Its been about 45 minutes and my head hurts on the side I got hit and I feel really confused. Am i experiencing a concussion? I took a tylenol for pain i'm thinking about burning a spliff.

    Any advice?

    i don't think it's anything to worry about. it was just sparring and if it was enough to give you a concussion it probably would have floored you. you'll get used to taking shots eventually. just take it easy and relax.

    I was planning on coming home and studying for my chemistry test, but I realized how messed up I was when I opened the door to my fridge and I just stood there staring for about a minute.

    Did you smoke a joint? I do that shit on the reg :rofl: Actually surprisingly I don't :o.


    I've only had a concussion once and I do remember being hazy, but trust me you'd know if it was a serious one.

    youre fine then.

    the bad ones are when you get hit, then wake up wondering what happened and theres a really bad smell that only you can smell.

    with mild ones, you get hit (accidental headbutt, clipped on the side of the head), dont even notice it, keep going and then all of a sudden you gas hard, feeling winded, maybe hot as well, and nautious to the point where you kinda feel like puking.

    This is why I quit kickboxing. Micro-concussions.

    Some people are just more susceptible to them or if you have had a major concussion before you can be more susceptible to getting micro concussions. If you are in a combat sport involving striking, you will get hit no matter how good your defense is.
