I have been relatively headache free my whole life. Lately though I have been getting back into an excercise regime that is fairly light and have been getting extreme headaces. They start out quite strong and than get less and less intense but still last for like 8 hours or more if I don't take pain relief. I would think nothing of it but it has been happening for the last couple of weeks but only when I try to excercise. The pain for the first half hour is very severe and I can not keep on exercising. I know I should go see my doctor but I would just like to know if anyone might know what the cause is.

  • Make sure you are drinking plenty of water, before, during and after exercising. it could just be that you are not used to the exertion and if you are dehydrated then this will cause physical pain as its your bodys way of conserving what is being lost(water through sweating) and making you stop what you are doing.

  • I was thinking that might be it, I am going to try and hydrate properly and than try again in a day or so. I also am going to focus on breathing properly to see if that helps
