What could be the reason for a headache with a pounding sensation?


how's it going?

i have been running & weightlifting regularly for about 9 months now with no problems. i started jumping rope as a substitute for running in the winter, and have been doing it for 3 days (6-8 intense intervals separated by short periods of rest.) the problem is; whenever i jump rope i get this headache that seems to go with the pulsing of my heart. the higher my heart rate, the more frequent the pounding. i've never suffered from headaches before, so what might be the cause of this?

thank you in advance.

I have the same problem! when i go for a jog my heart rate increases... causing the blood to pump more.. i end up with a CHRONIC head pain! like i cant stand up. it goes away in about 3 mins but im left with a painful headache... I'm going for a CT scan tomorrow.. may be due to blood pressure, blockage... or internal bleeding.. ill let you know the results. but i suggest you see a doctor...   (+ info)

What causes a constant headache for two weeks?


My sister has had a migrane headache for the past two weeks. It hasn't went away. She has been to the emergency room twice and they wont do a cat scan until her doctor recommends it. She can't get in the doctor until April 22nd. Does anyone know what could be causing the pain? Any remedies on stopping the pain? I bought her some "Head On", she has also been taking motrin.

The pain is in her forehead, and he works it's way down her neck.
----------

If her upper teeth hurt it could be her sinuses. Really the only way for her to get help is to really see a doctor.  (+ info)
