    Ok, was boxing with a few friends (we have all been training for years) and I got hit right on the button, fell down, but on the way down I saw the 'tv static'. Immediately drank about 2 liters of water. Now I am home and I have to work in 1 1/2 hours. The immediate headache has kind of dissapeard, but I can still vagely feel a soft throb. I feel a bit tired but not sick or anything. I am in quite good shape.


    I am wondering, is it best to take iboprufen or an asperin now? I tried searching online and on sherdog but with no joy. Can someone answer me asap, because I have to leave in 45 min..

    thanks

    duno if this is of no use 2 you with the timeframe, but I'd say first thing to do would be to get on the phone to your doctor and explain what happened, he may be able to give you enough advice based on that alone.
