Headache when bending over

Hi, I visited a doctor only about a week ago (not about this), but came back with everything normal, including blood pressure.

Recently I noticed if I bend over so my head is vertical, I get this headache usually situated around my left temple that hurts badly, disappears, comes back a little less painfully, repeats a few times and when it disappears it feels slightly itchy for a few minutes.

Since it's kind of soon to book an appointment again and might take weeks to get in, I just want to know if this is normal or not, and if it's serious.

Re: Headache when bending over


Hi, and welcome to the boards. If you just had a doctor's visit, and everything was normal, I wouldn't get too worried. I don't know your age, but as I have gotten older, I am much more susceptible to headache and dizziness when my head goes beneath my waist. I have learned to be careful bending over, even holding on to something to avoid losing my balance. I also try to squat down, instead of bend over at the waist.

If your headaches get worse, or happen at other times, I would let your doctor know, because headaches can be a symptom of other illnesses. I wish you well...
