    Great job 6:15! Way to gut through a tough WOD!! Special shoutout to Jason for getting up the rope for the first time in years! After they left, I took a shot at it. This was my first time doing muscleups in a real WOD!!! very exciting. I got through 2 rounds in 10:04 (???) and then was overcome with a horrible headache ive been getting all week when working out. Not sure if its the pollen or what, but it's getting old! Anyway, 2 rounds Rx so i was pretty happy.

    Etiology In approximately 10% of cases of headache precipitated by exercise or excessive exertion, an organic lesion can be demonstrated (Rooke 1968). The majority of these cases have a structural disorder at the base of the brain (eg, Chiari malformation). Aneurysm is rare as the primary lesion. Other cases of intracranial pathology including primary brain tumor, metastatic disease, and subarachnoid hemorrhage have been reported (Pascual et al 1996). Pheochromocytoma or hypoplasia of the aortic arch after successful coarctation repair may occasionally be responsible for exertional headache (DeLeon et al 1997). Most patients have no demonstrable pathology. Biological basis A number of theories have been proposed to explain the pain associated with exertion, but objective data are lacking in most cases (Williams 1980; Diamond 1982a; Powell 1982). The acute onset of headache with the Valsalva maneuver is most likely explained by increased intracranial venous pressure (Williams 1976; 1980). The Valsalva maneuver increases intrathoracic and intra-abdominal pressure that is transmitted to epidural veins, producing a pressure wave that moves CSF rostrally. The headache may be caused by the temporary impaction of the cerebellar tonsils with traction on the pain-sensitive dura when the patient stops the maneuver and the CSF pressure gradient is reversed. The etiology of benign exertional headache is presumed to be related to cerebral vasodilatation, both extracranial and intracranial in nature. In this respect exertional headache may resemble the headaches associated with high altitude and fever. Of interest, HmPAO SPECT of a young man with exertional headache revealed transient hypoperfusion in the frontal lobes bilaterally (Basoglu et al 1996). Weight lifter's headache may be caused by strain or stretch of the cervical ligaments and tendons with development of excessive muscle contraction. Epidemiology Rasmussen and Olesen have assessed the lifetime prevalences of headache disorders in a cross-sectional epidemiologic survey of a representative 25- to 64-year-old general population (Rasmussen and Olesen 1992). They found a lifetime prevalence of 1% for benign exertional headache. Judging from the number of cases of cough headache in the literature, the problem is probably an unusual one. Both benign cough headache and benign exertional headache appear to be more frequent in men (Symonds 1956; Rooke 1968). Prevention Where exertional headache is diagnosed, limitation of exercise may be practiced. Improved overall physical conditioning and a warm-up period before exercise may help in the prevention of exercise-induced vascular headaches (Lambert and Burnet 1985). Differential Diagnosis An adequate history will usually reveal the diagnosis of exertional headache, but exertion can produce headaches in patients with mass lesions, structural malformations, and vascular malformations. Rarely, exertional headache is a symptom of middle cerebral artery dissection (Adams and Trevenen 1996). The diagnosis of benign exertional headache can be made only after a thorough examination to rule out intracranial disease or structural malformation. Diagnostic Workup It seems evident that there are benign and malignant forms of headache associated with cough and exercise. An MRI examination is usually required to evaluate patients with exertional headache. If an aneurysm is suspected, or if there is doubt, further neurologic studies are indicated, particularly spinal puncture, CT scan of the head, MRA, or contrast studies. Prognosis and Complications The prognosis for patients with benign forms of headache associated with activity or exertion is good.

    Exceeded my March and April goal of getting three consecutive double unders. Thanks to some rock solid advice from Bill, I got four.

    Yoou really make it appear really easy along with your presentation but I to find this matter tto be actually something which I feel I might never understand. It seesms too complicated and extremely huge for me. I am looking forward to your subsequent submit, I'll try to get the dangle of it!
