Title: Headache
Post by: positive_guy on April 24, 2018, 03:40:41 PM
Not sure if this is the right place in the forum, but i wanted to note that migraine type headache is a recurring symptom i have one to two days after orgasm. Right now it's two days after a nocturnal emission and i have this kind of headache. I could the quantum stack and niacine only a few minutes after the ejaculation.

Quote from: Dr. Theoharis Theoharides
Right, but if I’ve been tracking mediators for instance, and I don’t know what on earth is going on and antihistamines don’t seem to be helping very much, then at least I want to make sure that I’m not missing something that might be correctable. Also, if someone has a lot of headaches and all of these patients are miserable because of the headaches and migraines, I will measure the molecule called CGRP, calcitonin gene related peptide. Not only is it a very strong trigger of mast cells, but as of a few months ago, there is now a CGRP receptor antagonist for prophylaxis of migraines

In my case headaches seem to come from tension I build up in the head/jaw area during and after orgasm.

If I make an effort at keeping the jaw relaxed, keeping "space" in my head, and stretching my SCM muscles, there's less headache.

But I have to do these exercises like 6 times a day.

I've been experimenting a bit, and it's a bit early to say, but I think there's one thing that prevents headaches (at least in my case), and this is retracting the jaw during (and just after) orgasm.

Something which I notice immediately is that there is less throbbing in the top of the head. And there's also less earpain.

The exact technique I use is:

- relax the jaw so it drops a little (mouth still closed)

- retract the jaw (without extending the neck; only the jaw moves)

- only little force is used; the movement is minimal

But like I said, it's early to say.
