Question Is this serious..?

Hi Guys

Been a while since ive been on the forum, but i just had to come on for some advice..

I do a little bit of boxing so am used to taking a few punches, however last week at a nightclub somebody came from nowhere and punched me right on the temple, needless to say i have a massive black eye etc but thats not the worst of the problems..

I think I might have damaged my brain after getting hit… My short term memory is literally non existent, I put wrong words into sentences that don’t even make sence.. I had another one to say but I cant remember it ... Oh yeah i keep slurring my speech

Do i just have a slight concussion? or could it be more serious?

Give yourself a good 2 months to recover.
When you start slurring, or forget things easily, then REST THAT MIND.
Read books, do a crossword, do some maths equations if you're good at it.
Don't take any more hits to the brain.

This is a serious reply, btw, it has happened to me and I read that somewhere and it helped.

Sound advice. I think it's a concussion btw.

It seems you're the one that's got the real brain damage.

That was pretty much towards RDJ and his choice of avatar, but it's all good.

Also, achilles, that isn't really what he was looking for - easiest thing for the doc to say, if he doesn't know anything about boxing or having dealt with things like this before, is to tell him to stop boxing for 6 months or completely.

you need to see a Doctor right away I have the same problem along with a soctoma in my right eye, this is not from street fighting though and you were not hit with a fist that had a glove on it, so the shot may have done more damage than you think.
Go see a Dr. these are exactly the symptoms I had when I got hurt in sparring.
