Obviously you are a wimp. I would suggest you find another hobby.

It is normal, so dont worry. Its very unlikely that you will have picked up a serious brain trauma after your first spar.

The headache is more than likely due to tension in the neck from absorbing blows (that it has never had to do before!). You, of course mention that your neck is sore too which half confirms this. Plus physical excertion without sufficient hydration can bring on some nasty headaches too. Plenty of newbies drink far too little fluids.

The more sparring you do, the better you will naturally get at avoiding/riding/blocking blows.
