hey everyone,<br><br>
just thought I'd poll the audience about headaches.<br><br><br><br>
I get headaches (pretty crappy ones EVERY time I work out). This has been going on as far back as I remember....even when I was in very good physical condition. Anyhow, I have done some reading and heard there is something called "exertion headaches." Women get them more than men, they come with exercise, etc. So I sort of self diagnosed this as the problem.<br><br><br><br>
Sooo, here's my question. I am a buddhist and I like to do prostrations every morning (sort of like a flop...for you football players out there <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">. I do roughly 300 a day. And a hellacious headache usually stops me if I don't take ibuprofen ahead of time.<br><br><br><br>
Do any of you know if there is a problem with taking a pain med like that every morning? I worry about taking too much of anything medicine wise. However, I assume that the benefits of the prostrations (physical AND mental) probably outweigh any problems with ibuprofen. Anyone know of any dangers with that? Is there a preferable medicine (acetominophen, ibuprofen, aspirin, etc.)? Anyone with a similar experience have any advice?<br><br><br><br>
Feed me knowledge, Seymour!<br><br>
XOXO<br><br>

A lot of times I get headaches when I exercise mostly because I don't breathe properly. I've noticed that when I pay attention to my breathing, the headaches don't happen as much.<br><br><br><br>
The only bad things I've heard about ibuprofen is that it is mildly toxic to the liver and kidneys. Acetaminophren (sp?) has a similar toxicity.
