Anyone else suffer from exertion headaches? After weeks, I've determined there's nothing I can do to stop them. I can no longer work out. At the end of a set (of anything) I will be struck with the most painful headache ever. I can't finish my workout. I've recently discovered I can do light exercises like 15 or so dips without triggering a headache. I'm guessing I have to slowly work back up to heavy weights. >tfw sports injury >tfw there is little information on said sports injury and how to treat it >tfw it is killing my gains What is killing your gains, /fit/? My brain went to Snap City one day and decided to rent an apartment.

Fuck, man. I've had two. The first one was a set of squats and it just snapped. I could barely walk home, I took a shower, popped some pills and slept for about four hours. I woke up and it was still going strong. Ate some food and popped some more pills and went to bed. The next day it was still there but mild. I've read that a couple pills before bed and some magnesium before workouts can help. I didn't take any magnesium and just took a few days off from all physical activity and haven't had any problems since.

>>20004331 Already did brah, they did all the tests, there's nothing wrong. Shit just happens when working out. My last one, the one that convinced me I can't work out without a headache happening, was triggered by only 10 pullups. >>20004346 Pills do nothing for these headaches. They're unstoppable. >>20004422 It's not too late bro

>>20004232 if you're well rested, hydrated, have been taking tylenol/aspirin, and the headaches are still occurring; then you definitely need to get an MRI, there might be a more serious underlying issue.

Do cardio for the blood circulation, and deep breathing. and rid your diet of fats, especially animal fats, drink tea, no sugar, ?

>>20004594 I know that the first time I got it, I wasn't breathing. The second time, when I did 10 pullups, I made sure to breathe. I still got it. >>20004605 >Do cardio for the blood circulation Would you recommend doing that on the day of the workout or on off days?

>>20004639 just walking is fine. breathing is key. deep breathing. inhale for 3, hold for 2, exhale for 5. something along those lines. play with the times to accomodate the intensity of your movement. eg. if you're just sitting and meditating in a candle lit room, you can increase the time for each breath. take a breather from working out if you need. avoid bright artificial lights. do some yoga and shit. do a fast, maybe a broth or juice fast. try to cleanse your system a bit. maybe you're overloaded and stressed. good luck
