New to Headaches/unusual circumstances
ryanlowe posted:
I just started receiving headaches as of lately. They come and they go.This sounds odd, but the most intense occur during/after ejaculation. Upon "release" there is a great feeling of relief and tension in the rest of my body, followed by what feels like an intense throbbing of my face and head. It feels as if my head turns into a brick. The pain is so intense that it forces me to keep my eyes closed anywhere from 5 minutes to half an hour. It has frightened my girlfriend, but most definately has me worried. Does anyone recognize this or have any suggestions?
