I have recently gotten back into working out and this past Saturday when I was lifting with my son I suddenly got a very bad headache. It came on very quickly during one of my sets and I had to stop working out. I felt dizzy and the headache stayed with me through the following day.
I went to the doctor and he suggested that my allergies were to blame and that I should use Sudafed and aspirin to help alleviate my headaches. He said I had some water probably in my middle ear and that the allergies were closing up my Eustachian tubes preventing this water from draining. I took both products he suggested and went to work out. Before I finished my first set the headache returned and I thought I was going to pass out.
Has anyone experienced this and if so how long did it take before you could lift again.
Any insight would be helpful .
