I was doing leg press in the gym and everything was normal (regular weight, wasn't straining too much) and on my last rep I got the sharpest pain in on the right backside of my head. I felt a little dizzy and it was very sharp for about 5 minutes. Now it feels like a dull pain, throb, 45 minutes later. Is it a popped blood vessel in my head? Suggestions?
hmm, I am very curious about this exact thing that happened to you because it sounds so similar to what has happened to me a number of times in recent years. I will be doing something like that, kind of straining, like a pushup or anything where I am kid of "clenching" my head/neck muscles, and then I get the thing that you described. Very sharp and scary feeling instantly, for a few seconds, and I get numb and dizzy kind of. And then it goes away fairly quickly. Anyways, have you found any answers with regards to this? I want to know if I should go to a doctor. Thanks.
Did you all have any answers for this? I have had the same thing, though not recently, however it strangely happens when I am laughing very hard...I will feel a burst in the back of my head which is very jarring, and then it will just numb out so I feel dizzy and as though liquid is dispersing in the back of my head

Sunday I laughed soooo hard but tried to hold it in bc a family member was sleeping nearby. I felt what felt like a blood vessel pop at the top of my head.
I have been having extremely painful headaches ever since...ears and eyes hurt too.
What did any of you ever do? Go to the dr? or did it just go away in time?
