Strange Headaches


Q: Hello, my question relates to SEVERE headaches ive been experiencing. Today is now late evening Sunday, and it began on friday. I've been lifting weights seriously since September, so its not like i've surprised my body with anything. On Friday however, within my first set of working out. I experienced an insane headache in the back of my head. It was awful and i was slightly dizzy, but i believe t hat was from the pain. I took some ibuprofen, because i get minor headaches often, and the headache was gone in about 15 minutes, completely. I did not finish the workout, and my off days are saturday and sunday anyway. During sexual activity today though, the same thing happened. About 2 minutes in another insane headache. It was only in one side of the back of my head this time, but still just as bad. It killed for about 30 minutes, i took some iburpfroen, and it was gone in about another 20. This is odd however, because i involved myself in sexual activity yesterday with no negative consequences. What could this be exactly? I have never experienced anything of this nature before, and have made no signifigant changes to my schedule recently. So whats going on exactly? Thanks.
