Default Dizziness from sparring

I sparred for the first time in boxing yesterday (only did muay thai before) and it has been almost 4 months since I did any kind of sparring and therefore I got hit alot on my head. I've boxing for a little over 2 months now and the skills I've been learning didn't come into use at all. I couldn't block the jab with my hand and kept getting hooked close up. I felt dizzy almost right after sparring (even though I'm using winning headgear) and couldn't sleep at night because of it. I felt a little better after a couple hours of sleep but still felt very miserable. Anyone else feel dizzy (just dizzy, not headaches) after sparring sometimes? I've had this happen to me a few times even in Muay Thai when I got hit on the head too many times. It really bothers me because I can't even fall asleep which is the best way to recover from it. It usually goes away after the next next day, but the night after sparring and the day after are so miserable that I often think about quitting sparring and just train for conditioning and shape. I'm wondering if I have a weak/thin skull that makes me prone to dizziness more than others. I don't have a bad chin, I actually feel less damage when I get hit on my face/chin than if I do on my head (front, side or back).

Well first. Muay Thai is very different from Boxing. You should know this. Thus you had your body squared alot more than what you would in boxing because Muay Thai has you upright and squared so you can kick effectively and check kicks. Thus you could not stop the jab and got hooked easily when in the pocket. So really the only problem there was that you were using Muay Thai stance for boxing which is a no-no.

Now to address your dizziness problem. You have a minor concusion. A serious concusion is unconciousness a.k.a knocked out. A minor concusion can be anywhere from having your bell rung to what you are feeling. So pretty much your brain is bruised. So you will feel dizziness and an uncomfortable feeling. Really there is no solution to this besides resting. Just chill, no exercise, strenuous activity etc. Just chill and do nothing but watch tv, read a book, etc. If it concerns you more than that then go see a doctor get a cat scan. Blah blah blah, if its nothing serious then they will tell you what I just told you.

Also it isn't that you have a weak chin/thin skull. Its the fact that your brain is moving around in your head and hitting the wall of the skull. Thus giving you dizziness, a rung bell or in serious cases; unconciousness. So its your brain's swaying in the skull that is giving you problems. The solution to that is keeping your guard up(ear muffs/peek a boo). Otherwise stay on the outside or improve the mobility on your neck.( I have a theory about it but its too complicated and too long to explain right now.)

Nah, you can build a slight tolerance, but you just gotta get used to slipping and avoiding shots so you aren't eating them flush.

Yea I know, the Muay Thai stance which is practical for checking leg kicks is not a good way to box. But I've been doing Muay Thai for almost 2 years and just started boxing so its hard to change to a more side ways stance because of the habit I've formed. I guess I'll keep it in mind next time I spar. I guess I'll try to spar every once in a while until I develop decent boxing form and defense ability. But I think at least some of me getting hit so flush had to do with my inactivity in regards to sparring. Even though, like you said, Muay Thai and boxing are very different, they are the closest thing to each other vs other Martial Arts or combat sports. My timing, footwork and just my reaction to different situations in the ring were so off because of my inactivity.
