Why is it bad to raise blood pressure while concussed? I have been having sex while concussed, and have made sure not to hit my head. Isn't this ok???
It is presumed: That pressure within the brain (intracranial pressure) rises with concussive injury. If the pressure within blood vessels in this space also rises, the risk of permanent injury is increased. Official CDC guidelines say "avoid activities that are physical demanding" including weight-lifting and working out. I read nothing about avoiding sex. The brief rise in blood pressure with coitus should be OK ...Read more

generally not: The body's blood pressure is a function of the amount of space available for blood, and the amount of blood in the body.
