hello all, I realize this is something I should probably see a dr for, but I havent been able to yet as im still in process of finding a dr and making appointment while i'm not working. but... in the meantime i was hoping to gather some idea of whether or not this sounds serious... My wife and I were having sex and just as I was about to finish i got a cramp in my foot (not out of the ordinary), followed by a shooting pain on the right side of my head. Now I dont get headaches too often, but i know what one is and this wasnt a normal headache. It felt like someone stabbed me in the head with a steak knife. I felt like i was going to vomit but didn't. then i tried to stand up and was dizzy. i tried to shake it off and go back to sex (i AM a guy afterall) but it happened again as I came close to finishing. It lasted a good half hour of pain so strong i wanted to ram my head into a wall. My wife seemed to think it was sinus pressure and downplayed it a bit (because she's my wife and assumes i am overreacting). so i tried to blow my nose and noticed a small amount of blood from my nose. I put a hot towel on my head and fell asleep and probably was still in pain while i was sleeping because I was dreaming about having brain surgery. I tend to want to believe the congestion theory, but I havent felt all that stuffed up leading up to this. Since then (occured 2 nights ago) i feel a bit off my game. slightly disoriented and i get light headed if i move too fast. I haven't tried sex again, but since I'm married that probably won't come back around for a few more months. haha. thanks for the anticipated help. oh, and probaby unrelated, but i dont usually have nightmares, or remember my dreams at all, but have had some pretty disturbing ones lately.View Thread
in the interest of full disclosure i feel i should mention a few more things.. this incident occured on monday night. the night before, I played baseball as i do every week and I felt rather out of it and had some pain in my head/dizziness though not at this scale at all. I chalked it up to minor heat stroke or dehydration as the temp was over 100... though i tried to keep putting water in me. yesterday I tried going into the pool with the kids but had to get out because of my head/dizziness. Thanks again.View Thread
