Worried, Advice/Thoughts on my Headache
Now on weds (Dec. 11) I was on my way home from work, so I was sleeping on the train, it wasnt a good sleep, I guess I kept waking up...anyway when I got up I had a headache (6pm). No big deal, like I said I sometimes get it from sleeply weirdly. When I went to sleep that night at 1am. (still had the headache)
Got up on Thurs (Dec 12) felt fine, watched some tv (I watch from the fl! oor) I got up to get some water, my head throbbed for 2 seconds, no problem, it was a headrush thing. So I went to the gym around 2:30. Halfway through my workout, my head started hurting a lot, so I left the gym (3pm) the pain lessened, but I had a headache the rest of the night- until I went to sleep around 12.
Friday I had to go to Jury Duty, but no headache...except when I woke up my head felt tight, like only half of the throbbing...but no pain. Just a few times during the day when I got up from sitting, my head would hurt for 10 seconds or so.
Now its Sat. my head feels ok...not back to normal yet, but I am going to try the gym later on.
So whats wrong with me? Like I said, I rarely get headaches, so 3 days in a row is VERY strange/concerning for me. I did some research, and heres what I thought:
1. Low blood sugar - perhaps, but on Weds/Thurs, I did eat during that time and still had a headache. 2. Not breath! ing while working out - could be, I usually hold my breathe a bit, bu t that has NEVER affected me before. 3. Low blood pressure - I had my pressure checked at my annual checkup last year and it was fine, but would that cause a headache for 6 hours (weds) and 9 hours? (thurs) 4. Migrine - well supposedly migraines have pain in 1 eye (my left eyeball), but I did not feel nauseous, or have any flashes of light. 5. Tension headache - this week has been pretty stress free. 6. Getting sick - well its been 4 days now, no sneezing/coughing/sore throat. I have no allergies that I know of.
The ONLY two things I can think of...I have not listened to a walkman for years now, I just got one and listened to it on the way to and from work on Weds, and while working out on thurs. But I dont know how that would be the cause, since I did not get a headache on the way to work. I last smoked a cigarette on Sunday (Dec 1) could it be withdrawal? I dont usually suffer from withdrawal when I last quit, and would it really hit me ! almost 2 weeks after?
Any thoughts? Thanks -Tony
