Weird headache for the last month


I'm a 38 y/o male, 6'2, 165 lbs, white. My diet is decent (I do have a sweet tooth, though not daily), I only drink casually on weekends (2-3 drinks), and am active (I run about 90-120km per month).

In the last month or so, I've been getting a localized headache around my right eyebrow - perhaps just above it and near the bridge of the nose, sometimes near the eye . It almost only happens upon exertion (running, weight lifting). It slowly gets better when these activities stop, though may linger in a lesser form here and there, for the rest of the day on and off.

It's annoying, but not super painful. Like a dull throbbing at its worst.

It's hard to pinpoint when it started exactly, though I remember noticing it for the first time a day or two after a weightlifting session maybe a month ago.

I stopped exercising for over a week, but as soon as I resumed, so did this.
I'm in training now for the spring running season, so would really prefer not to stop running and exercising if possible.

Any thoughts? Thank you!

Do you take any supplements like steroids? I don’t know if they can cause headaches but if you are taking anything else, please see your doctor and tell them. Worth seeing your doctor anyway to have blood pressure checked and other checks. I hope you feel better soon

Hello~It seems like it could be due to some misplaced vertebrae in your neck. I recommend seeing a chiropractor. He/she will take some x-rays of your neck, study them then go over the results with you. After a few treatments, your headaches should start to disappear.
