    I was working out at my gym this past thursday and was doing a chest day. I was on my final set of pec deck flys and was straining to get my 6th and final rep. I strained about twice as long as I normally do, just not willing to give up. I'm sure you all know the type of set I'm talking about. So right after I finish I get up and not but 10 seconds later I start getting a crippling, pulsing migraine that lasted for like 20 seconds. The headache passed and I continue with my workout. Ever since that night, whenever I exert much energy at all, the migraines return and are just crippling. Literally puts me down and I have to wait it out. I have told myself that if they continue until tuesday that I will go see a doctor. I was wondering if this is something common that others have experienced, or if this sounds like something that could be more serious? Thoughts ? Opinions? Flames?

    Thanks for your time.

    Uh...that doesn't sound good. You should probably go ahead and see a doctor about that.

    Why is that toy on your head?
    A doctor will give you better advice than anyone on here.

    Definitely. Migraines don't last 20 seconds, and aren't triggered by one defined event.

    I use the term migraine loosely. I don't know if what I am feeling is specifically a migraine, or if it is just pain in my head. Its in the front, right part of my head. I can feel it throbbing.

    But that said, you guys are right. Nobody here is a doctor, and anytime you feel pain in your head that isn't just a headache, its smart to see a doc.

    Maximal effort method: lifting a maximum load (exercising against maximal resistance)

    Repeated effort method: lifting a nonmaximal load to failure; during the final repetitions the muscles develop the maximum force possible in a fatigued state

    I never doubted your knowledge or your ability to use the terms correctly.
