I am not new to migraines, however this type of headache is entirely new to me. It's never happened before in my life and now it has happened twice in 3 days.
The first time it happened (three days ago) I was in the shower masturbating (my husband had been gone away for work for a couple of weeks and I really needed the release). I was standing up and leaning backwards with my shoulders against and as I reached the peak of an incredible orgasm, I got a sudden and severe headache starting from just above the nape of my neck and spreading both sides to the crown of my head to my forehead, temples and behind my eyes. It was severe enough to make me fall down in the shower and I started to vomit. It lasted several minutes and died down to a nagging throb in the back of my head. After a few hours and some Aleve, it went away.
Last night my husband came home and we started with him on top and then I went on top. Just as I started to climax, I got a headache in the back of my head. It wasn't as severe as the first time but was bad enough to make me slow down. The pain subsided enough that we tried again with me on top but just I started to come, it came on very quickly and very severe making me stop everything completely and start to cry. I couldn't move from the pain just sat hunched over with my forehead on the pillow and me grabbing the back of my head. My husband got me some water and Aleve and massaged the back of my neck and head. after a while the headache died down to a throbbing ache and I was able to fall asleep but only on my stomach or side.
I woke up this morning with the dull throbbing headache still here and even with pain-killers, it will not go away. It has been here all day, not really increasing in severity but still not going away. It is not bad enough to make me stop what I need to do during the day but it is definitely enough to slow me down. It is now 3:20 in the afternoon.
Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated as I have never had this before in my life and I can't seem to make it go away and I don't know what to do.View Thread
