    Partial numbness in neck due to anaconda choke.

    I went to BJJ practice today and during rolling I was put in a particularly tight anaconda choke and rolled over three times before tapping out.

    Now I've got partial numbness in my lower neck and face and I'm worried about nerve damage. Should I go see a doctor and get it checked out, or should I suck it up?

    Has anyone else had this happen to them?

    Yes see a doctor. Don't do anything until then.
