What might be causing this?

I think I might have that thing where you have high blood pressure in your head. Sometimes after I exercise (not immediately, like a couple minutes after I'm done stretching and I sitting down or I'm walking around) my head will start to hurt and my vision will get worse. Its hard to describe exactly what happens, but it gets slightly blurry and it looks like static like on an old TV in my peripheral vision. It can take about a half hour to go away. Its not always consistent in intensity. Sometimes it won't happen at all.

There are time when my head will hurt for no reason. Not like a headache, just like a chronic dull pain. Again its inconsistent, but it tends to happen after long periods (several days) of inactivity and when I'm stressed.


This discussion is related to high blood pressure in head?.

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Headaches can be classified largely into primary headaches (tension headaches, migraines, cluster headaches etc), secondary headaches (sinusitis, meningitis, refraction errors, increased intracranial errors etc) and cranial neuralgias. It would be best to have this evaluated by a primary care physician or a neurologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
