So today I really wanted to go to the gym but I had a bad headache that kept me on the couch for most of the day. I tried taking tylenal, getting fresh air, eatting and having caffinated beverages. Quite often a can of Monster helps out very much but I didn’t have any around me today so that was out of the question.
I went out with my wife and did a few errands hoping that being out of the house would help and sadly it did no help. The upside of of going out was it led me tot he mall where I went to Teavana and that helped somewhat. They have good tea there but still didn’t do the trick.
I tend to get headaches a lot and I have to make an advance decision on whether or not to go to the gym. When I have one of my common headaches going to the gym is the best thing for me. Not sure if it a side effect of my pre-workout or if it the actual workout itself but it helps my headaches to either feel better or to completly go away.
The issue is, if I try to go to the gym when I have one of my bad headaches, it doens’t matter what I do or what I take (pre-workout) my headache will only get worse while I am at the gym to the point where I can’t put my concentration into the weights and it becomes unsafe for me to continue.
Over time I have learned the feeling of which types of headaches will be helped or hurt by working out which has benefited me greatly because it helps me to feel even better during a workout when it helps to cure my headache.
