I have had similar pains recently. I was doing a maximal load dead lift and nothing really hit me at first but as I was taking a rest my head got really disorientated for a few seconds. Now, a few hours later, it feels like i got punched in the side of the head right around my cheek bone / eye and temple. never had this happen before and i’m a little worried. any thoughts?
Getting a funky feeling post max deadlift is not unusual, but you shouldn’t feel what you described hours later. Sounds like a burst blood vessel, but that is pretty much a guess dude. Not exactly helpful, but monitor it, and if you start getting overtly bad signs like prolonged dizzyness, speach impairment, etc. get to the er. Of course, you posted this yesterday so you could already be dead and this is too late anyway, but hopefully not. And yes, people have indeed stoked out hitting weights (most common one I hear of is leg presses though, not dls) so thats no joke.[/quote]
yeah I’m not dead yet…and I feel a little better today but it is actually sore when i push on / up under my cheek bone. I woke up feeling fine. I called the doctor and told them and they said they would look at the symptoms I gave and call back (haven’t gotten a call yet). I know its not uncommon to feel dizzyish and what not while lifting but now hours / days after in your face.
