    Getting Injured in the Middle of My Cycle??


    Hey guys, I'm on week 5 of my 8 week epitest cycle, and just recently I injured myself pretty good. I don't even know what exactly it is that I did, but every time I go lift I get a killer migraine. The pain starts in my upper neck, and then slowly moves around my entire head. I had to leave the gym the other night because of it. It could be a pulled or spasmed muscle in my neck, or a pinched nerve, I have no clue. But, to get to the point, should I continue to stay on my cycle while I'm injured or what? I really don't know what to do, I've never had this happen to me before.

    Also, if this kind of injury sounds familiar to anybody, please let me know what I should do or what you did about it. Thanks!

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Go see a chiropractor if you can. Sounds like you've tweaked some kind of nerve though.

    Muscle relaxers and lay off shoulders for a week. This happens to me everytime I overdo shoulders.

    This...


    The 'exertion' headache you describe is a very common occurance. The pain you experience is most likely due to bad posture/form during a workout where your BP skyrocketed and the blood vessels in your neck get trapped. Also, you may have been holding your breath during the movement, causing the blood pressure spike.

    My thread goes into more detail: http://www.wannabebigforums.com/showthread.php?t=25955

    To summarise, you need to take 1-2 weeks off the gym for your neck to recover, trying to avoid any exertion (including exercise, sex, masturbation, lifting).

    In order to prevent a reoccurance:

    - try to correct your posture if it is bad. If you need more information on 'ideal' posture then I can provide that for you. - try to avoid the 'valsava manouver' (holding your breath) whenever possible, concentrate on your breathing until it becomes natural. Most people find its best to breath out on the exertion phase of a movement in an exercise. - allow your CNS (central nervous system) sufficient recovery time, (basically, do not overtrain). Taking a week off from intense training after every three months is usually a good idea.

    Note: In my experience, the more you excert yourself with the problem, the worse it gets, and your back to square one. Once you think you have rested enough, get back into things relatively slowly.

    Good luck.

    I've had exertion headaches before they are awful. Took some time off and concentrated on correctly breathing from then on. Haven't had a problem since. They mainly happened during big movements like squats and deadlifts. Good luck with it, hopefully it just goes away like mine did.

    I was thinking the same thing. Haven't had a chance to see the chiropractor yet, I'm on a Naval Base for schooling right now and don't have a lot time. Guess I'm just going to be taking it easy for a few weeks. Don't know if I should start PCT yet or not...

    Thanks for all of the help guys. I'm pretty convinced that it's an exertion headache as well, or maybe even something going on in my neck. Still don't know if I should start PCT yet or not, as I'm going to be taking at least 2 weeks off... That was hard for me to even type. This is probably the worst headache I've ever received in my life, I can't even do bench press or anything. Again, thank you guys for the help, but could you let me know if I should start PCT now?
