So two weeks ago on my Wednesday workout I got an explosive headache on the 1st rep of my 3rd set of deadlifts… I didnt think much of it but it ruined my workout… the headache was localized in my right temple area… I pushed my Friday workout back a day to give it some time to feel better… on Friday I was doing squats… same thing…
I went to the ER to get it checked out b/c im at school and don’t have a local primary care physician. They thought I might have had a small aneurism. They gave me 2 CT scans and said I was neurologically perfect. The doctor told me not to do squats anymore. But I figured that the squats just reaggravated the original ‘injury’ and it wouldn’t be a big deal.
Today I was working out for the first time since then. I made it through squats perfectly as expected. However, again on my 1st rep of my 3rd set of deadlifts it happened again. This time not as bad because I stopped right away and moved on to other exercises that didnt bother me.
So, does anyone know what this could be? Muscle spasms, pinched nerve? Has anyone experienced this? Again it is a headache that comes on extremely quickly and is located under my right temple. Thoughts and advice would be appreciated.
