This is a somewhat complicated personal problem with several factors. Let me begin by saying that I have been a regular alcohol consumer for most of my 20s (I am now 26), drinking at least a few beers almost daily for several years now. I experimented with other substances in my early 20s, but besides alcohol these days I will occasional smoke marijuana. This past Sunday I was having sex with my girlfriend and after a while when we were both quite heated and sweaty I encountered the onset of a vicious migraine - it became apparent during the sex that a headache was oncoming, however I continued until it became a full blown migraine, at which point I told her I needed to stop. It was a freight train headache that I've never experienced during sex. The headache, feeling of some sort of impending doom, as well as bad anxiety and a fuzzy/dizzy head feeling has lingered off and on for 5 days. It is also worth noting that I drink energy drinks daily and did so right before this particular sex session, however I was not drunk. I quit energy drinks completely after this Sunday and gave myself a 3 day break from alcohol. I still feel awful. Is this a strange combination of over-exertion, poor health, alcoholism, kicking energy drinks... or what? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. I have myself worried sick that I have done some sort of brain damage.
Hi, during sex, your blood pressure and heart rate increase, and chemical changes occur, including an increase in Serotonin. Alcohol and energy drinks will also make changes in these area's, so i think your CNS was overloaded and couldn't cope. If the headache/migraine continues then please visit your doctor just to be safe and sure that it is nothing more sinister.
