    Do you wear a swimcap? Eons ago I had an accident and got stitches in my forehead. My doctor insisted that if I was to swim, I had to wear a swimcap. I tried a workout wearing the rubber cap and I got the worst heat-headache ever! I tore the cap off, the headache went away and I never wore one again.


    Interesting about tinted lenses. I never noticed any difference, but it's good to know when buying replacements.

    Question

    Hi All3girl! Have your headaches gone away? I noticed the original date of your post and I wondered... Was it your goggles, neck muscles or something more serious? Just wondering and hoping you are ok!

    Headaches

    After you rule out blood pressure problems and dehydration. Consider having a chiropractor manipulate the cervical spine. Specifically the suboccipital segments. This should only require a few visits and no x-rays. I'm a chiropractor I was just adjusted today for the same problem. It stems from lifting my head up instead of rotating in line with my body to breath. I swam my first week of masters last week and got really fatigued. My technique fell apart. You may have done the same. By the way do not have a chiropractor manipulate the cervical spine unless he does your blood pressure first.

    Thank You

    I used to get back pounding headaches while swimming and after swimming. Doctor theorized it was sinus problems. I now take a daily nose spray and it has cleared up my problems.

    This is most likely related to your goggles. There are some swimmers who get goggle migraine. Try another style or try loosening them slightly.
