Whats up with my head
« on: January 17, 2006, 08:14:27 AM »
On Friday I started getting these real bad headaches.  I'm fine until I work out. About 5 minutes into lifting, during a set, my head starts to kill. Like someone has put it in a vice and squeezing it. And it will hurt for the rest of the day. I work out at noon. Then I'm fine the next morning until I lift again and same thing. Happened Friday, Saturday, and Monday. I did not lift Sunday. Any ideas.

(FYI, it also went away Friday evening but after wife and I had sex, it began to hurt again when I climaxed?)

Therefore, it must have somehing to do with a rush? ???

had this myself could be due to a few things.

not enough carbs, dehydrated etc.

most likely it is not breathing out during the exertion poart of the exercise. i took a week off, wen t lighter 4 a while focused on vbreathing and i was dead on.

yea it does hurt when climazxing lol

Dude,

There is such a thing as 'exertional headache' and 'orgasmic migraine'..  see http://www.relieve-migraine-headache.com/orgasm-headache.html  for more info, or google the terms above.  However, new, severe headaches SHOULD NOT be ignored and you should get checked by a doctor.

Make sure to breath properly when your doing heavy lifts.  Holding your breath while straining to complete a lift (i.e. valsalva maneuver) can spike your blood pressure and may cause the symptoms you describe, especially when the brain is in a oxygen defiecient state.  Most important though to get this checked out by your doctor to rule out a more serious pathology.

Have your blood pressure checked. If its already high working out can make it sky rocket

escpecially if you train very intensley with lots of supersets and then just stop when your done training.

I had the same thing happen to me a few months ago. i was doing a set of 20 reps in the leg press and at about 15 I knew i was short on breath and i finished up anyways. Major head ache any time i touched a weight for the next 3 weeks but luckly it went away.

could it be a neck injury? when i had a pinched nerve (or something) in my neck whenever i trained for even 2 minutes i'd get the terrible headache that lasted all day. 4 or 5 months off fixed it. :(
