I’ve had these after some of my more intense cardio workouts but I figured it was due to dehydration. The only thing that sometimes works to calm these and other major headaches I get are a cold washcloth on the back of my neck or forehead. Also be sure to hydrate before and during the workout.

What is your sodium intake like? I got migranes when working out and eliminating salt from my diet. Maybe that might help you.

@Missus_LLC:  Me too! I can’t do any intense work outs otherwise I feel terrible after.

I would incorporate gatorade heavily into your pre and post workout. More plain water will likely make things worse.

I take some excedrin right before intense workouts, which always seems to be a good preventative measure.

@Missus_LLC:  Confusion? are you working out to get in shape while pregnant? OR are you just getting back on teh bandwagon of working out. Either way Lower your salt intake adn sugar, gatoraide and rememeber to Breathe… it may sound silly but if you are not breathing then you are putting your body into stress mode which can equal those lovely migrines. Start slow and do what you are comfortable doing.
