Very Sharp Throbbing Pains In A Very Specific Part Of My Head/neck When Heart Rate Rises.

I'm a 23 year old male with no history of migraines, and I honestly can't remember the last time I've ever had a headache. Very recently, about 2 days ago whenever I do any type of physical activity, either excersising or even sex I get an extremely sharp throbbing pain in the upper neck/ lower head, where I would describe the rear corner of my brain. It happens almost instantly once my heart rate rises. I noticed when I stop breathing the pain will go away, but once I start breathing it comes back full force. Any ideas? I'm going to get it checked out tomorrow morning.

Hi kef300

I'm glad to hear you are having it checked out, sooner rather than later because speculating on what this could be is not a good thing. You do need an accurate diagnosis, and the only one who can give you that is a doctor who can review your and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examination. Nobody can diagnose via the Internet - it is not safe.

Having said that, there are a few different types of headache disorders having similar symptoms you may want to discuss with your doctor. One is the orgasmic headache and the other is primary exertional headache.

Good luck and let us know how you make out OK?
