REALLY bad instant headache during a heavy lift..
- 05-02-2007, 10:26 PM
Ok sounds like a mix of a few things. This is what im experiencing.
I take my Liquid masterdrol / Green bulge and NO Shotgun. Head to the gym. Been stacking this for a month (Finihsing masterdrol cycle). I started jump roping. Once i hit a 100 jumps i felt like i got smacked in the head with a dumbell. It was an instant stabbing pain with throbbing on my left temple. It hurt so bad it went through my jaw and made my teeth ache. My whole left side of my head went numb from hurting so bad. I had to stop my work out for about 30 minutes just for the throbbing to stop long enough to continue working out. Scared the crap out of me, thought i did something bad. Well it turns into an all day headache after that (tolerable). Well since that happened i hit the gym 2 other times. 2nd time it hit me during the jump rope again and third time (Today) it hit me doing pull ups. Anybody got an idea? Its in the same exact spot each time (Left temple) extremly painful.
Thanks for any info.

It eventually went away when I stopped taking Stims and Juicy Juice.
I believe it may have been high blood pressure... as sex and lifting both caused it. ESP. During climax. Sometimes slightly before...with great intense pain thereafter... almost to puking.

In all cases a little R & R made it go away

i experienced this on several occasions. On one time, it was so bad i went to the ER... in that situation, i was on lots of ephedra and the high BP was causing it, but i have also had at absurd, instead onset headache that occured during some forced reps on heavy incline bench. Felt like something popped deep in my forehead. instant pain and it throbbed like a motha****a. stayed like that for 2 weeks. the guy that owns my gym has been in the trenches for 30 some years, and told me it was a popped vessell, but not to worry about it.... so i didnt, and i'm fine.

Breath! Most likely its the blood vessel in the back of your head. I've had this happen when heavy lifting, proper breathing helped so my blood pressure didn't go so high. If I remember correctly its a common problem and not dangerous.

I've had this happen twice. I figured out later that it was due to holding my breath while straining to get that last rep up.

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 ?

wow this explains alot this problem started like 3 days ago I thought it was the gym cuz I used to train in my garage but yeah its happened during squats, pull ups, incline, and during climax breathing has been able to decrease the pain next day in the gym gonna focus alot more on my breathing it really scared the ***t out of me
