headhurts when I stand up

Okay I have been having some trouble since my miscarriage a few months ago.  I have been diagnoised with Polycystic ovarian syndrome and also border line anemia.  I have been having what I call a "hormonal headache"  I have low progestrone.  This headache hurts about the same time of day about 45 mins after I get done working out. Then it continues on and off the rest of the day.  Nothing seems to help it.  However it seems to hurt much worse when I first stand up...and eases up a little when i start walking or sit back down.  Any ideas???

It is quite possibly a vascular headache - have a doctor check your blood pressure, as this is a potential sign of hypertension.

hi,

Hormonal headaches may be triggered by hormonal changes in the body. Most usually occurring as women begin their periods each month, hormonal changes also occur as young girls reach puberty, as women become pregnant, and as older women reach menopause.

Taking oral contraceptives (birth control pills) may also cause hormonal headaches for some women – especially when the pills are first started.

You may start headache medication about 2 days before the period starts and continue taking the headache medication until the period has ended.

Commonly effective headache medications include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn).

Also can rule out hypertension by getting your Blood pressure checked as Hypertension is associated with Polycyctic ovarian disease.

Try to incorporate mild exercise like brisk walking which helps in PCOD and problems associated with it
