I was squatting today, not too heavy I did 295 and did the first set perfectly no problems. I took a little 3 min break and went to hit my other set, and did 4 reps, pretty quickly, and before the last rep I stood up for about 10-20 seconds before I squatted down. I go ATG and before I even hit parallel I got a VERY bad head pain, more like a shock. Head was fine before, it was just after I went down. I honestly have never felt this before, I went to rack the weight and missed the pins and almost dropped the entire barbell, but I managed it up. The pain was still really bad so I just sat on the floor with my hand holding my head. It felt like my head was clotted full of blood, and shocking at the same time. I sat down for about 10 min and the pain was still there but milder, like a bad headache. I wanted to see If I could still squat so I went to unrack the bar, and when I barely went 1" down the same pain came back just as bad as the first time. I ended up sitting down again.
I went to get a drink of water in the gym and when I went down to grab my bag the same pain came back. I noticed after bending my head it comes back like the first time, and I have to really grab my head tight because my brain HURTS!!! I did some OH presses, it wasn't as bad because I don't bend my head too much, but it was still tough because my head still hurt. I went home after that, and It's been 2 hours, and my head still hurts.
Does anybody know what could have caused this? I have got headaches before but never this bad. Im eating right now but Im going to bad right after and hopefully Im better in the morning.
