Whenever I have a question that Google cannot answer, I come to you!
Has anyone out there ever gotten a headache half a day after lifting weights, particularly after using the back, shoulders, and arm muscles? I seem to always get a splitting headache about twelve to twenty four hours after I lift. I rolled my head around a bit and could tell that my upper back and neck are super tight. The headache isn’t immediate, which makes me think it’s related to tight muscles.
I don’t lift a lot of weight (because I’m simply not that strong) and only lift to the point of fatigue – it’s not like I’m crushing it in the weight room. Anyone have a solution? Honestly, this happens frequently enough that it turns me off of lifting in general. Do I just need to stretch out after lifting?
Headache aside, it’s shaping up to be a fine Saturday. I woke up around 7 and had a mini breakfast before going back to sleep for another three hours… Bliss.
Better than maple syrup, as I always say!
Off to relax this headache away…
