Prevent Exercise-Induced Migraines
Do you ever finish a good workout with a wonderful exercise high, only to have it diminished by a pounding headache? Activities such as running, rowing, tennis, swimming and weight lifting tend to be some of the most common activities to precipitate these "exertion headaches," which are common among migraine sufferers.

To prevent them in the future:
Always warm up and cool down for several minutes
Try a lower workout intensity
Breathe slowly and deeply during your workout
Have a light carbohydrate snack right after exercise
Drink plenty of water before, during and after exercise
Drink a cup of coffee before a strenuous workout.

    Mary, thank you for this article...certainly pertains to me unfortunately...surprised about the coffee tip...since it is a diuretic, but will definitely use some of the suggestions/ never would have thought that the exercise would actually cause the migraine.

    Great tips!

Now tell me why I usually get sick, right after a I start a really dedicated, strong workout, routine?
Crazy, but true.

Off to get my water, now.
