Over the past week when ever I have done intensive exercise I have experienced an intensive sudden headache that will stop me briefly from exercising and last at its peak for a matter of seconds. I feel fatigued after for some time. I am 16 and have exercised my entire life, this has never happened to me before.

Today when it happened this morning at swimming training I felt real fatigued well after for about an hour or so and my resting heart rate went from a normal 54 beats per minute to around a 100. My blood pressure was also significantly higher. It has slowly decreased from this peak over the day but still is significantly higher.

I have just come out of a bout of flu but am currently not experiencing any sever illness, just a slight cold.

Any information anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.

  • How about a trip to your PCP for a complete physical. You really do need to get checked out. If he/she finds nothing wrong with you and this problem continues to occur, then your parents need to consider specialists. Since your heart rate is an issue, I would start with a cardiologist. Your parents need to know what is going on ASAP. There are medical conditions that first become evident in the teen years. So if this problem does not go away ASAP, get to a doctor.
