Thank you for your question. This may be due to sudden changes in blood pressure during and shortly after orgasm. It may be a symptom of an underlying developing problem with your blood pressure. Given the onset of about a week, it may be possible this is an isolated incident which will resolve shortly, or you may need to have further testing of your blood pressure to see if you are prehypertensive. Please be guided accordingly.
