ok, so on wednesday in class, i got punched in the head.. this was nothing that i could've avoided, since we were not sparring, i was not supposed to block.. it was defensive tactics, so i was the attacker and this guy blocked me and accidentally made contact with my temple. now it wasn't full force, but it still hurt.. now is it normal to still have a little headache 4 days later.. ?.. like i didn't fall down when it happened.. i just had to kneel down for a minute, cuz i was dizzy, but no more dizzy, just a little headache and i think i have a small bruise.. .. so should i have any worries?

It's possible that you may have a concussion. I wouldn't think you would still have any significant pain after 4 days. The main thing with concussions is let it heal.

See your doctor ASAP.

I got punched in the eye in sparring and had a thumping headache for 2 weeks, at the time i went to the hospitail who x rayed it and found my sinus to be full of blood which gave me toothache and earache and a sinus headache, 2 weeks later I went back since the pain was still there and the doctor said to leave it another 10 days! and she was right.

Head injurys cant be taken lightley you have to see someone just incase

I don't know if it's a problem or not. But it could be. That's why I would like to see you get a professional opinion on it.

I'm sure you are fine, even if it is a minor concussion, all they are gonna tell you is to give it some more time
