The dull headache with pinching feeling is a non specific symptom and can be due to many other reasons like
Thanks , listening..
high blood pressures, tension headache or cluster headache
Since your MRI is clear and there are no aneurysms or risk factors for hemorrhage recurrence there is less likely to be due to hemaorrhage
How is your blood pressure control?
it's normal , within 140 / 90 max , average 130 / 80 most times , tho i havent checked since the headaches began
You must look for other causes of headache and if possible to consult your physician to take a careful history and do an examination to ascertain the cause of your headache, keep checking your blood pressures
Most of such headaches usually respond to painkillers like NSAIDs
ok Dr Saleem , will do - meanwhile , any risks of setting off another SH with my exercises esp weights ?
The only thing you need to take care of is your blood pressure as it rises during exercise
if this is normal then there is no issue with exercise
right. how should i approach this - do i take a BP monitor along to the gym ? or rest every 5-10 minutes or so... ?
You can take blood pressure reading before, at the peak of exercise and after exercise
ok and then share it with my doctor ?
right. anything else doctor ?
Since it is 18 months since your hemorrhage and you do not have risks like aneurysms or bleeding disorders, you have very less chances of having this repeated if you keep your blood pressure controlled and thats all
Thank you very much Dr Saleem , have a nice day. Regards
