    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I thought it was a myth, but I actually saw stars!

    Is this normal, should I be worried!

    I was working techniques last night with a Judoka green belt that had not been active for some time. We were working on moving and throwing Seoi-nage (shoulder throw, a variation of ippon-seoi-nage). And she, yes she…stop giggling, planted me on my head and shoulders. When I got up, I was a little dizzy and saw little yellow stars, rotating around in my peripheral vision.

    So what causes this, is it anything to worry about?

    Yeah, it's just too bad all of Gravedigger's signatures are actually burned onto stone tablets by the flaming sword of Gabriel himself, then mailed to Phrost to be converted into forum code under the name "Gravedigger". -Boyd :love2:

    Yeah, normal ~ probably a mild concussion.

    You saw stars, welcome to the club.

    At the gym we call it "greeting the fairy". Dunno why.
    That civilisation may not sink,
    Its great battle lost,
    Quiet the dog, tether the pony
    To a distant post;
    Our master Caesar is in the tent
    Where the maps are spread,
    His eyes fixed upon nothing,
    A hand under his head.

    Yes! I am in the mild concussion club, just what I always wanted!

    Glad to know it is not serious.

    You stood up too fast/soon after the impact.

    When I take a solid shot to the head or face I remember all kinds of crazy stuff that I never would have remembered otherwise. Just unimportant details of totally insignificant events.

    Your optic nerves are connected to the occipital lobe, which is responsible for visual processing. Bang this part of your brain, you see stars. Simple!
