I recently went to the doctors explaining that after sex, I had a really intense head ache (this was 4 weeks after).He immediately sent me to the hospital for a CT scan. The results came back clear. How ever iv not been the same since it happened, i have head aches and what feels like a heartbeat in my head. Could you offer me any advice please, im still really worried. Thanks alex

Thanks for using this forum....

Headache after sex can occur due to vasodilation but persistent headache needs to be evluated..CAT scan is normal means that there is less possibilty of aneurysm however confirmatory is CT Angiography..I suggest you to meet a neurologist to examine you thoroughly and then advice some drugs for headache..

take care...
