If you’re wondering why you always end up with a headache after an exercise, it could be that you’re suffering from what we call the primary exertional headache, otherwise known as the exercise headache.
An exercise headache normally entails pulsatile pain which can be felt on both sides of your head. It usually occurs after any strenuous exercise or activity like heavy lifting, running, swimming, and even sexual intercourse. An attack can last from a few minutes to 48 hours.
To prevent exercise headaches from occurring, you can keep from engaging in very rigorous physical activities. If that’s unavoidable, do your best to warm up properly before getting to your routine.
