pulsating with a lot of pressure from the top of the head down behind the eyes
Albany, NY (PRWEB) November 6, 2006
We've all heard of chronic migraine headaches, cluster headaches, sinus headaches, and even menstrual headaches - but have you ever heard of a "Sex Headache?" Although researchers say only a small percentage of the population experiences sex headaches, there are an estimated half million Americans suffering from this affliction. Sex headaches come in two classes (harmless and serious).
The most common form is the "benign coital headache" which tends to occur on a regular basis during or after sex. The "benign coital headache" is commonly known as the "orgasmic headache". This is a relatively harmless headache with no known long-term effects. Sufferers describe the feeling as "pulsating with a lot of pressure from the top of the head down behind the eyes". Although this type of headache is medically benign, it's certainly a hardship for people who suffer from this condition.
The second type of sex headache is the severe "new onset" headache that happens suddenly during sex. This is generally a first time headache, which patients characterize as "the worst headache of their lives". This type of sex headache is believed to be vascular in nature, and could be the warning sign of a serious medical emergency. The "new onset" headache is extremely rare, and can also occur with any strenuous activity such as exercise.
Fortunately, the vast majority of all sex headaches are not life threatening. Of course they are life-altering since sex is the one of the most important aspects of being human. For that reason, people who suffer from these headaches feel depressed and embarrassed.
Until recently, modern medicine has found no real answers regarding benign sex headaches. Sufferers tend to struggle through their episodes with only minimal relief using ordinary over the counter pain medications.
Finally science has discovered a natural chemical that appears to guarantee a "headache free" sex life, and the secret comes from hot peppers. Known as Capsaicin, this natural compound is responsible for the intense heat generated by peppers of the Capsicum variety. It turns that when Capsaicin is delivered through the nose in the form of a nasal spray – it instantly reverses general headache pain, and may also prevent sex headaches.
Since 2003, the medical community has been buzzing about a product known as "Sinus Buster". It's the world's first and only completely natural hot pepper nasal spray. Sinus Buster is recommended by hundreds of doctors and pharmacists, and it's now sold in more than 2,000 stores nationwide. Aside from relieving migraines, clusters, and sinus headaches, Sinus Buster is also known to be extremely effective against sex headaches. According to the manufacturer - SiCap Industries, this spicy homeopathic formula also prevents sex headaches for most people when used before intercourse.
Wayne Perry, President of SiCap Industries claims his company has received several thousand emails from people praising Sinus Buster for saving their sex lives.
"Just imagine getting a pounding headache every time you have sex. And doctors still don't completely understand why, but we do know that much of the pain is created by the same means as many other chronic headaches. So it figures sinus buster would work for these people too. I didn't even know what a sex headache was until we started getting letters from our customers. I'm glad I don't get them," says Perry.
Wayne Perry is not alone. Many people still don't know what sex headaches are even if they suffer from them. One reason is that sexual dysfunctions are rarely discussed, and most people find it hard to divulge their conditions to doctors because of the shame associated with sexual disorders of any kind.
"One German study at the University of Munster, focused on 51 patients suffering from orgasmic headaches. Their scientists found men are more than three times as likely than women to be stricken by orgasmic headaches. Dr. Achim Frese, a professor involved in the study, surmises most patients experience bouts of these sex related headaches for only a few weeks. The symptoms can occur during all sexual activity including masturbation, but for most patients, the cycles can suddenly stop for weeks, months, or even years.
"The course of this disease varies widely. Some patients have only one bout in their whole life, while others have it for years with nearly every sexual activity. The headaches typically start when patients are in their mid 30s. Many times patients find the headaches will lessen or even go away altogether if sexual activity is stopped, or if the affected person assumes a more passive role during intercourse," says Dr. Frese.
Wayne Perry of SiCap Industries adds, "If you have to worry about how you're having sex just so you don't get a headache, then you're probably not having any fun...that's for sure. If a squirt of hot peppers can help, then that's the way to go. Besides capsaicin also makes your body release endorphins, and that gives you an extra boost during sex. The Capsaicin pepper extract also increases blood flow that helps men keep it up longer and harder. It's a win-win situation for everyone."
