I just started to get really bad tension headaches right before climaxing. I am starting to get worried that I have an aneurysm or something. I was searching all over the web and it said that low blood sugar could be a reason. Is that true?
I know that a low blood sugar level can give you headaches. Where it ties in with everything else you asked I'm not sure.
Yeah, I don't know what was going on there. I now don't get it during intercourse, but I do get them when I am doing intense cardio. I was scared that I had some weird brain bleeding. Going to see my doctor soon!
I would check by having a doctor see if my blood presure was high, or my blood sugar was low. You could be suffering hormonal changes. but try to eliminate certain things if you can, relative to pressure and sugar levels. Good luck.
The fact that you're getting these headaches during exertion of one kind or another may make sense to your doctor. It's possible you could be dehydrated, as you're getting them when you're working out, but I don't know if that would relate to the headaches during intercourse. That said, if this was in the mornings, after a night's sleep, it could be due to dehydration. As the headaches are recurring, and don't seem to follow a real pattern, you should consult your doctor.
Do you exercise on an empty stomach? If we don't eat enough calories during the day and we suddenly engage in such activities, it can result to tension type headaches. One of the main symptoms of hypoglycaemia is headache as well. When your blood sugar level gets too low, it can cause headaches or migraines. It's best for you to consult your doctor though as he is the only one who can diagnose you.
In the meantime, make sure that you eat properly, at least three to five times a day. Don't skip on your meals as that can trigger the headaches. Look out for the early warning signs of a migraine attack: yawning, pallor, sweating and mood changes. Make sure you get your daily caloric requirement.
