Has anyone ever experienced a "thunderclap" headache right at the time of orgasm? I've had this happen a couple of times, and it happens almost spontaneously.
I am a 59 year old female who just experienced a Thunderclap Headache during orgasm 3 days ago. I was stunned. It's never happened before. It FREAKED ME OUT! It's happened twice since and I kept wondering if it was a precursor to a stroke. I have been googling all morning and just found this link. I'm astonished at how many people experience this. Like everyone else, it's just prior to climax. The first time was during sex. Then twice after during masturbation. Frustration does not BEGIN to cover my feeling about this. Last night was the worst because it ended up being so severe, it felt like someone was shoving knives into my eyes! The pain kept up for a while and I had to take an Alieve to get it to calm down. Anybody have any suggestions for how to make this better, what causes it, etc.? Thanks!
