I am a 38 year old healthy male. 6-days ago I experienced the worst headache I have ever experienced in my life during an orgasm. It was so intense I thought I was going to pass out. I had no idea what it was. A couple day later the same thing happened; both episodes happened after having sex with my girlfriend. I did some research on the topic and was surprised, yet relieved, that this is not so uncommon for males.
The issue is that I have had lingering effects since those two episodes. I have had this steady pounding in my head that goes from behind my left eye all the way to neck. My eyes cannot focus from time to time and with that a nauseous feeling without throwing up. I have tried Advil to no avail. I have abstained from any activity since the second episode. Some parts of the day are better than others however I am going on a week since the first episode and I am concerned about the lingering effects.
These headaches can occur because having sex raises the blood pressure and causes muscle tension. The blood pressure rise also raises the pressure in the head and can lead to a headache.
Do you have high blood pressure or have you been checked for high blood pressure? If your BP is too high, getting it under control can help with the sex headaches. Also, taking a pain reliever an hour or two before sex helps to prevent sex headaches.
As for the ongoing problem, that is way out of my league. I think a visit to the doctor is in order.
I suffer from the same problem. I spent the $5,000 on the ER visit, CT scan, and follow ups to figure out I was just going to have to deal with the headaches. If it is the first time you have experienced these headaches I would recommend seeing a neurologist. If it is a simple coital migraine you will feel a great sense of relief. Plus they can prescribe something like Imitrex to help get rid of the headaches. And if it is something more sinister they can find it and fix it.
