    Title says it all really- sparred saturday really enjoyed it and learned a lot, the guys were quite supportive too.
    However, i was quite thick headed that evening and the following day despite not taking any big hits,(ive improved now though).
    1. Is this normal for the first few sessions of sparring?
    2. Does it stop happening after you become accustomed to sparring?

    Depends on how many hits you've taken.

    Accumulation is just as bad as a big impact. My horrible advice would be to see how you are after another day or so. As sometimes you simply get rattled.
    I've had it before, pain in the base of my neck and skull and some surface bruising.

    But if you're really worried. Local Dr and get a referral.

    You need to be a little clearer about what you mean man. Are you having headaches or do you mean something different?

    It's tricky to explain, at its worst there was this ache but the rest of the time (and today on occasion) it feels - almost like theres a load of tension in the front of my head.
    Not too worried about it as I've had worse gone to the doctors and they just kinda gave me the 'you're not ill look' and gave me a leaflet so unless it stays around i probs won't see my gp

    Even light sparring until you get used to it can be stressful on your body. You hold your arms up, get pummeled on your guard, and tense most of your body while you work hard (which is why coaches keep telling people to relax).
    Maybe your just sore in places you normally are not (neck, shoulders) and also coping with the adrenaline dump.
    See how you are in a few days, if nothing settles go to the doctor again, or a different one.
