Got spiked on the back of my head
 
me and a guy who outweighs me by about 30 pounds were having a little grappling match and i had an armbar locked in but he stood up (he's about 6"2, im 6"), lifted me and slammed me right on the back of my head on the carpet living room floor. anyways, i got ko'd for a split second, it was fast enough that the 5 others didnt even notice, but still, ive never been hurt/knocked out/rocked before in my life,i had a headache for an hour or 2 and now i feel completely fine but i was just wondering, is my chin more suspectible now i.e will this make me more likely to be knocked out from a punch?

The short answer is yes. Once you've been concussed it's less difficult to get a second concussion and it basically rolls that way till you stop getting hit in the head.

thanks for the answer.

stupid question but..

lets say my brain had 100% HP before the incident. Considering i was out for a half second and only had a mild headache for an hour, would i now be like a 90% or a 10%? is the damage tellable by the amount of time out i.e since i was only out a second not much damage was done to my brain. im asking this cause assuming i fight someone and they hit me with a couple solid punches that i would have walked through before, would i now get ko'd much easier and for longer periods of time or is the difference unnoticable?

thanks


edit: what im asking is, did my dumbass friend ruin my chin permanently?

He might have to be honest. While reading your post I immediately thought concussion or brain damage. I've also heard that carpet burns can affect ones ability to take a punch.

Have you been checked out by a doctor? If not he should be able to tell you how many HP's you have left.

Ok so not to dig into you but WTF are you doing still sparring?

Take some time off, concussions take dump truck loads of time to heal the tiniest bit. I asked my wife but she wont say crap because anyone reading this could sue her because she's a RN so basically MY advice is the same as rustys, go to the fn doc get a MRI and you'll know more.

I cant say how bad it effected you because my net ready MRI broke this morning BUT Ill say this.

USE PROTECTIVE GEAR!

P.S. head bleeds can kill you, its nothing to play with if you are having residual effects STOP SPARRING and see a medical professional.

^THIS. I'm always wondering when people are writing about quite severe incidents while training, sometimes even having obvious health issues for quite an amount of time and did not go to a professional who can check them personally, but rather ask people in the internet whose medical credentials they cannot verify and even with credible medical professionals could not a personal live check.

im not going back to sparring but you dont really understand the situation cause i didnt explain it but basically i beat up some dude a few months ago and took his shots no problem, but assuming he asks for a rematch (and im not gonna say no, sometimes men have to stand up for themselves) would i be more suspectable to a ko. i mean like a strike to the face, not the back of my head. i cant just say "no i cant fight i got ko'd recently". im aware that i would be risking getting brain damage but im just wondering if im more suspectible. your wife isnt telling me im cable of fighting or anything,i just wanted to know about if im more suspectible now.

if your wife says no im not gonna go run out and slam my head on a brick wall or something im just wondering (since she is a RN) that in her opinion, assuming ive been flash-ko'd for a split second and recovered fine, would there be a NOTICABLE difference in knockout suspectibility?

and im really asking alot i know, but is there any kind of relavance to amount of time out? for example, if i was out cold for a minute, 30 seconds, an hour, or just a splitsecond, is there a different trauma rate?

for example, if i was out for a minute, chances are i got hit real bad and alot of damage was done. however it was only a split second and it didnt really even hurt after about 5 minutes. could the damage LIKELY be just as bad regardless of time or is waking up immediately a good sign that damage was minimal.

dont worry about getting sued lol your not telling me whether or not i can fight im just wondering if my chins ruined cause i aspire to be a fighter one day and i dont wanna be getting ko'd from jabs lol

THANKYOU FOR HELPING

thankyou

Doesn't really sound like you're asking for advice so by all means, go do your thug thizzle. You sound pretty young so your body should be able to take it:thumb02:

fmj 02-07-2011 09:37 PM

look, ive been in like 2 fights my whole life ok, i dont go around picking or starting them. someone started one with me and i stood up for myself... sometimes the only way to settle things is in a fight, and if you step down your a *****. its about being a man... you cant let people walk over you, sometimes you have to stand up for yourself to get respect so that people dont pick on you...

i assure you i have no bullying problems but assuming somebody calls me a ***** or tries walking over me or challenges me to a fight, THAT is why im asking the above questions.... i dont want to fight, and probably wont....

Yes you can. Who's hindering you from pronouncing exactly these words┐ Look at the professionals. After a KO often they are not allowed to fight for several months - and in pro fighting business (fighting) is usually valued higher than health. So if you're not a pro fighter (which your way of questioning doesn't suggest) you should keep it easy for a while to your own interest.

Btw. the brain itself cannot feel pain. So pain isn't a reliable indicator on how much damage the brain has taken after a trauma. That's something you only can find out via MRI.
