Sometimes when I wake up I have headaches and when I stand up my vision will go blurry or I see complete darkness. ?
See answer: Although several types of headaches are more common in the morning, "awakening headaches" suggest a sleep disorder may be the cause. Sleep apnea can cause this type of headache. Insomnia can also cause this. Dark vision on standing is due to transient low blood pressure(orthostatic hypotension). If this happens frequently later in the day see your physician to see if low BP is the cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have headache when I wake up and when I stand up and move its getting worse, is it serious and I have to be worry?
I've had a headache on and off after i stand up or cough for about 3 days now. Is it something serious?
I had a crippling, intense headache after orgasming to the point where I could not stand. It eventually went away, returned the next couple of times I orgasmed (diff. days each time) always lessening with each occurrence until it stopped happening?
See Below.: Its rare, but a headache associated with sexual activity (including at the time of orgasm) is described. The fact that it stopped happening is a bit re-assuring, but if it recurs, please do get evaluated immediately. If I saw you in clinic, I personally would have done a neurological exam and likely recommended an MRI or CT of the brain prior to attributing it to being an orgasmic headache. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why do I get a huge headache when I stand up? I have tried getting up much slower in stages but nothing works. Can last 10mins-1hr sometimes more.
Headache w standing: A headache that occurs with standing but improves with lying down may be related to intracranial hypotension, which is caused by a CSF leak. This does not confirm the diagnosis, but this condition is often treated quite differently from other headaches. Has there been any trauma? Does the headache improve with lying down? You will want to see a doctor for this if so. ...Read more
My bf was mopping a building with pinesol now I have a bit of a headache from the fumes. I never had this issue before but I can barely stand it today?
Breathe fresh air: If you're pretty sure that headache is due to exposure to fumes, then go outside & breath some clean fresh air. However, if that isn't enough, then you should go see your Family Doc to look for coincidental causes of headache. And you shouldn't need any over-the-counter pain medications to treat headache, just clean fresh air. ...Read more
