I've heard septoplasty can cause horrible headaches. Is that true? Will they be worse than the headaches I already get from not being able to breathe? I've read some comments from people who got them that suggest they were much worse. How long would they

I: I do think some people can get a headache from the procedure. Septoplasty can be uncomfortable, but the discomfort does resolve. I would be careful that your headaches may be from something else rather than the problems breathing. That would be a rare cause of headache. A risk of surgery would be that the breathing gets better, but the headache remains. There is a controversial diagnosis called "contact headache" that is thought to be from contact between the septum and the turbinates, deep in the nose. This can be diagnosed by numbing that area during the headache--if the pain resolves with the placement of lidocaine, you may do well with the surgery to separate the contact point. As surgeons, we should remember that there is a risk that "surgery for pain causes pain.". ...Read more

When pushing myself during exercise (like sprinting) or masturbation, I get a very painful headache that comes very quickly. What is this?

Headache: The most likely cause of these headaches is muscle contraction and tension in the scalp during straining. A less likely possibility is an abrupt rise in blood pressure during those efforts. It would be helpful if you had your blood pressure checked before and right after exercise to see whether it rises substantially during the headache. If it doesn't, it would favor muscle contraction as cause ...Read more
