These last few weeks I've been taking it easy in class, taking time off. I noticed that when I'm having conversations with people I was consistently forgetting names and places. Like, I'd see the place in my head but I couldn't remember the name until someone said it. Happens to everyone. For a few weeks though, I was struggling a lot more than normal. My family, friends and girlfriend said that they didn't notice a difference but I felt it. So I stopped sparring and memory improved. Now I have an ever-so-slightly sore head. Had it for a week now I think. It feels like my brain is warm. Like on a pain scale it's like 0.5 out of 10. Also, I'm a bit of a hypochondriac. I have been to the doctors over nothing quite a few times. I spar almost every session, but it's normally light sparring. Going to talk to my instructor about it. What do you guys reckon? Am I just imagining it? I'm talking coherently no problem now, and I can concentrate and still learn like normal.
