If you have a headache, does sex make it better or worse? I haven't had a headache in a long time, but when I had an especially bad head-banger, sex made it worse. I think it's all that blood trying to flow through those tense blood vessels. Sometimes sex made a headache go away, but most of the time it didn't. Plus I used to get migraines so bad that I'd feel nauseous while I had them. They were stress headaches.
Apparently, a new study in Health Magazine says I'm an anomaly. It's all about seratonin: "...seratonin nerves in the brain are less active during a migraine attack. Boost their activity and the pain improves."
You also need to have an orgasm for the sex to do away with the headache. Other studies have shown that migraine patients have bigger sex drives. Well, I'm proof positive for that one. Heh.
At least I know that the ache in the little head goes away with a good romp in the hay.
