What Causes Me To Get Headahes From Getting Hot?

I have never been able to over exert my self- run, join sports or even enjoy a hot summer day because as soon as I get too hot or my head feels hot from excersise, I get a headache. Now I work in a wearhouse and I am lifting boxes and I am getting alot of headaches from getting hot from the work. I think of myself as a thermometer and I can tell when the heat gets all the way up to my head its going to have no where else to go and explode. I want to work out at the gym but I don't want to get a headache everytime. They can last 2 and 3 days! I'm sick of "taking it easy"!


Hi Carla,

We cannot diagnose you online because we are not medical professionals, but we can give you information and support.

A good Migraine specialist may be able to help you with this issue. We have a patient recommended directory you can see HERE. Exercise may trigger a exertional Migraine for some people. We have an Ask the Clinician question regarding this HERE.

Good luck
