Working out involves engaging in physical activity to sustain or improve health and fitness.

Also known as exercise, working out is a powerful medicine. It is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, it prevents health problems, builds strength, boosts energy and can help to reduce stress. Working out can help you maintain a healthy body weight and curb your appetite.

If science has proven that exercise increases energy and endurance,

  • Contribute to mental well being
  • Reduce some effects of ageing, especially the discomfort of osteoarthritis
  • Keep joints & ligaments flexible, which makes it easier to move around & decreases the chances of falling.

Why then, do people get headaches after working out?

Dehydration: during exercise, sweating occurs. Dehydration happens when the body loses more fluid than it takes in. If you don't drink enough water, it becomes easy to dehydrate & get a headache. To prevent this, drink a few cups of water an hour before & a few more afterwards.

Too much exposure to the Sun: working out in the sun can trigger headaches in some people. It's advisable to exercise before the sun is out, preferably in the early hours of the day & take a shower after working out.

Low blood sugar: glucose is a main source of energy for the body. If you don't eat before exercising, your body can burn the little blood sugar off & suffer hypoglycemia which can cause headaches. Fix this quickly by taking a small piece of fruit, or juice before heading off to a proper meal.

Most exercise-related headaches can be treated using simple prevention methods or taking pain medication like Forpain - a combination therapy that provides relief from headaches, fever & muscular pains.
