(But I thought nothing of it since I was generally tired and thought that in other case it was my neck acting up, since it got rly messed up after being knocked down a year ago.

I remember next day I could barely move my neck but that happens to me all the time because we dont spar with headguards and I just havent got used to the extra weight.

I dont think my head hurt the days after the fight (only the evening after the fight), however, later that week I got sick and had a bad cough, but now it has calmed down. But now my head has been hurting for like 5/6 days now and I’m getting concerned. It especially hurts when I tilt my head down or something like that and I’m getting really concerned.

Should I seek a doctor ASAP or is this not an emergency/ will go away?
I found this a quite horrifying read.
I certainly hope, you have called it a career as a boxer.
You have been gambling with your brain, and it objected to it.
It's your computer, who makes you function. Be careful with it.

dude everyone who ever boxed has gone through this. you didn't projectile vomit or get koed, chances are just a small concussion. You'll be fine. you would have slipped into a coma by now if it was something serious.

I've had headaches plenty of times after sparring, especially starting out. its a rough sport.

It says your age is 29.

But when you’re 49? “Headaches plenty of time” certainly puts you in the riskzone of early dementia.
Or to live with daily headache (which is common among retired fighters).

Some years ago, neurogolist Margaret Goodman wrote in The Ring that at least 50% of boxers sustain brain injuries (what can be proved, the true percantage is a lot higher).

Dr. Ferdie Pacheco, who worked with Muhammad Ali: “There is no boxer without brain injury.”

After your fight, did you go back to training and have you spared?

You should not be sparing without headgear, you coaches are making a mistake

yeah but there are different levels to brain injury. billions of people have had a concussion before.

I get mild headaches after heavy sparring. they go away within the hour. you can get a headache from riding a roller coaster.

The headaches are calls from your brain, telling you it doesn't like to be punished.

Life after 40 is generally a more comfortable place to be in than when you are young. Your body might be destinate for a long life, but it won't be that comfortable if your computer is damaged.

At 17, its prob not a big deal, but always best to get it checked out.

You should most definitely be sparring with headgear, particularly if you are fighting with headgear. Find a new gym probably. Also work on your neck strength and make sure you are fully hydrated.

You don't play boxing, and it isn't for everyone. I haven't had a headache, but have definitely had a sore neck from time. Work on that high guard and defensive movement as well. Better to get hit to the body than the head in my opinion. Strengthen the body as well.

I got a headache after the wait-time for Canelo-Kovalev to start. I may sue DAZN if its something serious.
