Running Headaches

Literal, not metaphorical.

Occasionally after I run, I suffer from horribleĀ migraines. The kind where you need a combo of gatorade, a fistful of Advil, and an afternoon long nap. When I first started getting them, they weren’t terrible. I could just manage to get through my day… but recently when I do get a running headache, it seems like nothing will make it stop. Today I ran, and just like that the worst of the worst headaches visited me. I finished my run at 11:00am today, but after struggling through the better part of the day, I slept for the rest of the afternoon and just woke up a few hours ago.

I ate some dinner, ran some errands… and I have to tell you I still feel pretty shitty.

Anyone else suffer from these? What do you do to prevent them?
