    Massive headaches when lifting

    I get a pounding in the back of my head when I lift heavy . I went to the chiropractorer and he told me it was because of my neck that was out of line and pinched my nerve damaging my central nervous system. I haven't been to the gym in three weeks to test out if this is working or not. Has anyone had anything similar to this? The headaches only come when I workout hard like the last few reps.

    I had this "event" happen a couple of years ago and could never figure out what it was so I had to stop working out. I started working out again and never came back for over a year

    That was the next step if the chiropractor doesn't work

    This may be possible the second time but the first time I never touched gear. But eating was horrible and didn't know what I was doing . Second time high bp is more than a possibility. It just started to lower. But it was steady 170 after I dropped gear. Now back to 124/80

    exercise induced...check it when you train hard and also be aware if your holding your breath for too long while lifting..

    I actually just went to doctor for severe headaches yesterday. I'm 31 never got them before. I didn't think it had to do with lifting he thought it may be from lifting and stress. Anyway he prescribed me isomethept-dichloralp-acetamin. Its supposed to alleviate pressure and help with pain. People with migraines take this stuff. I only used it twice so far as I don't like to take pain killers due to kidney stress. But it seems to help somewhat. Don't know if this even applies to you but when you mentioned pounding in back of head I immediately thought of my recent head aches.

    Did you get them only when Working out? I started getting stress related stys under my eye around the same time because of my cycle of DECA and tren that was too long. Were u heat sensitive? After I had the first one all the ones after came a lot easier .let me know if this is familiar

    pffft. He's a quack looking for more business. The blood vessels in your head have dilated too much. Caffeine + Low dose aspirin should help. And stay hydrated!

    The 2 days before it happened I was at the x games and didnt drink the normal water I usually do. I think your right with holding my breath my bp was really high prior to this but nothing happened then

    I just want to be fixed. I don't do much other than work and take care of my baby. This is one of my only hobbies and would do anything to be back in the gym
