Unusual Headache while Lifting Heavy


#1

Hello Iron brothers,

This is my second cycle and a first injectable one.

I have planned my cycle as follows:

Test E- 500 mg/week for 12 weeks
Dbol- 40 mg/ week for 4 weeks
Nolva 20 mg ED
HCG- week 13 and 14
PCT with Clomid and Nolva- week 15- 18

Other supps:

Whey
1 mr vortex
liv 52
fish oil
glucosamine sulphate
wellman multivitamin

Now coming to the problem. I am currently in week 2 of the cycle and while doing a heavy lat pull down on tuesday i suddenly got a very bad headache kicked in. I did not have anything like that before. I did a dbol only cycle before this and it never happened that time as well. I thought that may be due to some exertion. It repeated again next day. the headache made my day bad. it is like i get this headache while lifting and it lasts on and off entire day making me feel weak on the job.

I did some research and came to know it can be related to high BP. I went to a doc to check the BP. It was high on 10 points both the side. 130/90.

The next day i dropped the dosage of the dbol to 20 mg and skipped the pre workout and the bp was back to normal. but still i have a mild headache and some sicky feeling.

Is it a test flu what they call it on forums or is it more estrogen which is messing up.

Currently i take 20 mgs nolva every day.

Should i start taking adex .5mg EOD? Would that help? Or should i permanently keep the Dbol dosage to 20 mg? I dont want to reduce the dbol though. but i dont want to have these headches. it fucks up the mood and affects performance as well while training.

I am early on my cycle so i can modify it. Please help me. I eat almost 3000 calories a day which is almost 1000 cal surplus to my daily recommended intake.

230 gms protein, 300 gms carbs, 60 gms fat. (appx)

Thanks :slight_smile:

I almost guarentee it is the dbol. Hop off and see if it goes away.

Yes you should be using the AI during your cycle to keep estrogen under control.

The Nolva will just prevent gyno but not help control estrogen

i thought nolva alone would serve the purpose for the cycle like this. anyways i will go buy anastrozole tablets soon. i am getting 1 mg ones and the recommended is .5 mg EOD so how should i break them in half?

I thought nolva alone would be enough for a cycle like this. anyways i will get anastrozole tomorrow. i am getting 1 mg tabs while the recommended dosage is .5 mg EOD. How should i divide it in exact half?

Buy a pill cutter from the drug store. Super cheap. They won’t always be perfect but dont worry about it.

How much water are you drinking? You may be getting dehydrated.

And you should definitely be taking the adex.


#8

Go to doctor and tell him to perscribe you indomethacine which you drink an hour befire workout.

I am drinking a lot of water…even during the workout. I got the adex. So now should i stop nolva?

I took an aspirin 75mg with my breakfast yesterday which is like an hour before workout. I did not get any headache then.

Thanks for your reply :slight_smile:

I am drinking a lot of water.

I took an aspirin 75 mg yesterday before my wprkout and i did not get any headache then. I am definitely getting anastrozole today. Should i stop nolva or continue with it while being on anastrozole?

Thanks :slight_smile:
