Hi there i have recently turned 43 and i have been married to my husband for 22 years. In the past 2 1/2 weeks something is happening to me that i have never experienced before. When we have intercourse i experience the most terrible pressure headache on one side of my head that radiates down the back of my neck. This happens every time but now i notice i always feel this pressure but the bad pain happens when having sex. I went to the doctor who said my blood pressure was borderline high but i know this was because i was anxious. My doctor shook it off and gave me a prescription for naproxen. Has anyone every expreienced this before?
