Last Wednesday I was squatting and got a migraine. It came on when I was at the midpoint and was probably holding my breath. It was an intense one at the front right hand side of my head. It was a full on migraine with the nausea, light affected and just brutal. I get them occassionally. I medicated it and it went away but has lurked for a week now. It comes back if I don’t take the meds and I have seen the doctor who gave me some stronger meds and nasal spray.
For the last 2 days I have got on top of it and there has been no pain during the day. But when I go to the gym, I last about 2 sets and all the warning signs are back. If I lifted for another 5 minutes it would be back on a full scale.
Has anyone had anything similar to this? Thoughts would be appreciated and management strategies would be great. I’m 1 week out of lifting which is very frustrating.
