OK, about two weeks ago, I was doing sumo deads with pretty heavy (for me) weight. During one set I could feel pressure building in my head, and after about 3 reps I got a blinding headache on the right side of my head, and my right eye and ear felt like they were about to burst. I had to end the set, even though I had enough strength left for at least 3 more reps.
It took like 5 minutes of walking around breathing very deeply and deliberately to make it go away. Tried another set, but after one rep, here it comes, so I quit altogether for the day.
OK, I figured maybe I wasn't breathing enough coming up with my deads.
Here's the thing though... ever since then, any heavy lift I do, and even some not heavy stuff (push ups, for instance) I can feel this pressure building up, and get these head/ear/eye aches.
My blood pressure is always nearly perfect, and I've been scanned for aneurysms in the past (and had none)...
I have been suffering from allergies a little bit lately, but could that cause these headaches? Could I have done some serious damage during those deads a couple weeks ago?
Yes, I'm going to mention it to my doctor, but I thought I'd see if anybody here has experienced this.
