I’m really bummed. I was all excited to start my DC training program and now I can barely train. I did my heavy (for me) set of 8 squats just fine. I rested and then did my 20 rep widowmaker. I had to take a few breaths between each rep around rep 10 or 11. By rep 18 I could feel my head start hurting. After the 20th rep and racking the weights my I had a pounding headache. I was well hydrated and as far as I know I was breathing well.
Since then I’ve head similar headaches when having sex, cleaning a carpet, and trying to do a heavy set of DB shoulder presses.
I’ve read similar stories on this site and other sites and there’s lots of different theories as to what is going on ranging from it’s nothing to better get your affairs in order because you’re dying. I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with this and what has helped.
I’m making a doctor’s appointment today.
