    This has been my experience. Once I corrected my breathing I was ok - used to get 'em during squats and heavy leg presses.

    For those of you that wear a hat during your workout it may be the problem, or at least contributing.
    I finally found out that when I take my hat off while training the problem went away.

    So if you were holding your breath during a heavy lift, your BP goes through the roof and a blood vessel possibly ruptures in your head ?
