The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Having lifting pain

    Starting sometime last week, I have been experiencing pain in the back of my head (where the head meets neck, I suppose) whenever I do a heavy set. Exercise doesn't matter, squats to bench to pushups all have given me this pain. It's a sort of throbbing, and makes me feel a little bit light headed. I have never experienced anything like this before last week in my weightlifting.
    Any thoughts?

    Intuitively, I would think that I tense up in that area when I do a heavy set. However, I am confused as to why this pain has come out of nowhere all of a sudden. It's not like I am suddenly lifting absurdly heavy weights. In fact I am still pretty weak, and lift little girl weights by WBB standards

    The only time I've ever had the sort of sensation is after a heavy set of squats where I get a little light headed after releasing the tension. Hows you're blood pressure/stress?

    I couldn't tell you the number, but I'm pretty sure I have decent blood pressure. I'm 20 and have always been in decent shape.
    As for stress, I'm go to a pretty intense college and also have a girlfriend... but I don't think it's anything extreme. I wouldn't describe myself as a stressed-out person, for what it's worth.

    Also, I woke up today with the back of my head/neck still feeling shitty. I bench pressed last night. I'm kinda worried.
