Moving or shaking head up and down can lead to experiencing headaches.
Not being hydrated properly, can lead to headache, too.
Actually, staying hydrated can help preventing headaches.
It is known that fatigue causes tension type of headaches, and fatigue is a side effect of dehydration.
By drinking enough glasses of water every day, you'll treat fatigue and headache.
Getting a warm shower, helps in relaxing the tensed muscles (reason for tension headache), and relieves the headache.

What's the type of the headache you get?
Can you describe the intensity of these headaches?

You are welcome!
This was probably a case of occipital neuralgia.
It is a type of headache characterized by piercing, throbbing, or electric-shock-like chronic pain in the upper neck, back of the head, and behind the ears, usually on one side of the head.
Usually, the pain of occipital neuralgia begins in the neck and then spreads upwards.
Following things can be reason for experiencing this kind of headache:
irritation or injury to the occipital nerves, which can be the result of trauma to the back of the head, pinching of the nerves by overly tight neck muscles, and, frequent lengthy periods of keeping the head in a downward and forward position.
As a wrestler you are in a risk group of people who can suffer from this type of headache.
This pain often improve with therapy involving heat, rest, anti-inflammatory mediations, and muscle relaxants.

You mention shaking head up and down but what if you shake side to side and get a long lasting headache?

headache confusion
I also have pain when I shake my head up and down but not side to side. I have visual disturbances such as flshing surfaces but this maybe due to my short sighted eyes. Any advice?

Side to side headache!
Im a Mixed Martial Artist and I experience the same problem! I dont have any headaches durin the day tho, and it doesnt hurt up and down just side to side. The ache will return durin sparr sessions, and its right in the middle of my head. When I get jarred it turns in to a legit headache afterwards. I went to the E.R. the other night and my cat scan results came back clear but I still have this problem It doesnt make any sense to me!

Ive been having this pain for 3 days now.
How long does it last
Btw i have long hair and I always flip it to the side, but
its been hurting now when ever I shake my head to the side. I can shake it up and down perfectly with little to no pain, but its different when it comes to flipping my hair. PLZ HELP!
