Anyone know anything about migraines from exercise? This has happened to me for as long as I can remember, and it has deterred me from exercising for most of my life. I have given it an honest try and pushed through many times, but I always give up after a few weeks because I just can’t live like that. It’s misery.
When I exercise, I never get that endorphin high, I don’t feel energized and happy - I almost immediately get a migraine that lingers for about 24 hours. Yesterday my husband and I started the 21 day fix workouts, which I was excited about, but after we finished, my head started pounding and I figured I’d just go to bed and sleep it off. I ended up waking up at 5:15 this morning because I was dreaming that my head was being smashed with a brick, and it certainly felt that way. I’m a 7th grade teacher, and I spent today trying to teach with a horrible migraine. I had to turn off my classroom lights. It’s definitely not motivating to go home tonight and exercise again. I just want to crawl into bed. I drink tons of water, that’s all I drink, all day long. I doubt it’s dehydration. Plus, as I mentioned, this has happened to me since I can remember. It sucks and I’m over it! Help!
