/ Adrenaline headaches?
I know full well I was on an adrenaline high during the route, I felt it as I came down during belaying thing is since then I've had a lingering head ache that won't shift ... I thought it may have been dehydration but after drink lots of water it's still not gone is there such thing as adrenaline head aches? Does anyone else get headaches after an epic day out?
Hardley ever, not while climbing anyway. I tend to have water and maybe coke for afterwards (for the sugar mainly)
I'd go and get it checked out at an A&E dept. Probably nothing but worth getting looked at.
Not specifically after climbing, but after, say, a big presentation where I have been nervous and pumped before it, I will quite often have a headache. I believe a lot of headaches are tension headaches, and if I'm able to take a step back from a nerve-wracking situation I will notice my shoulders are quite tense. Easier said than done, but try and consciously relax your shoulders and neck.
Keep hydrated from early on but electrolyte type drinks may also help.
No, no such thing as an adrenaline headache as far as I have ever heard/experienced.
Yes I get these type of headaches regularly!!! You are not alone.
Think it is a combo of terror and dehydration and often altitude if mountaineering.
Do you wear sun glasses?
Just pack some headache pills in your pocket for your summits!
