Please Help I Don't Know What Is Going On!

Hello, i'm new to this forum so please forgive me if it seems like i'm an idiot. I went rafting over the weekend, fell out of the raft and while I do not believe I hit my head on anything I now have severe head pain in my temples, the top and back of my head during strenuous activity especially sex. :oops: I am 26 if that matters. I don't know what to do it has been going on since saturday and now my g/f wants me to go to the doc. Someone help me, please!

A lot of people have migraines start after head injuries. It's not that the injury causes migraine, but that your brain is already prone to migraine and it is the injury that brings them to the forefront.

There is something called sexual headache (or coital headache) that begins during orgasm. Some migraine meds can be taken about 30 minutes before sex to keep the headache from coming on. I don't know if there's any other treatment for them, though.
