    Thumbs down Sharp pain in upper neck / base of skull

    The other day I was doing 5x8 rep squats at my maximum weight.

    On the 8th rep, I went down and as I started to push up my legs wobbled and I failed the rep... the bar caught on the rack and I sat down on the bench behind me.

    sharp pain struck me at the base of my skull / upper neck. I immediately wondered wether I had let the weight of the bar rest on my neck when i collapsed . It happened so fast I cant really remember what happened.

    Today I was masturbating & as I got to the end, the same concentrated pain struck me. It hurt like HELL! Feels like a concentrated migrane.

    Has anyone else ever had a simliar issue from squatting / failing reps on any exorcise???

    Avoid lifting for a while. That area isn't something you want to mess around with. Go see a doctor and get a check up/x-Rays. Hopefully nothing bad.
