Headache and bloodshot eyes after exercise?

Question by Jason: Headache and bloodshot eyes after exercise?
I’ve been generally inactive for the last 6 months with severe lack of exercise. Recently I decided to get back in shape by walking and jogging more places, though I’ve been finding that I develop a headache and bloodshot eyes if I raise my heart-rate too much.

Is this something to be worried about or is it just because I’m out of shape?

  1. I get that when I do cardio…drink more water throughout the day, you’re probably overheating and/or dehydrated…aim for 4-5 liters a day.

    2nd thing, that headache could be from low blood sugar levels; make sure you’re diet has a balance of food coming in throughout the day (not just 1 big meal in the am and another at night)…you should aim to eat something, not a big meal, just something, 30 minutes or so before running (a few crackers, whatever), to keep your blood sugar levels more stable. After working out, try to eat a turkey sandwich, apple…just something to get some healthy sugars into your body (no processed take out crap or sodas, etc.)

    that should fix it…

  2. It’s because you have been inactive in 6 months. You have to give your body time to get use to the exercise again. This will probably keep happening until then. But you don’t have to worry about it because that’s the reason! Now, if this does not go away then you should get it checked out!!

    Help me please :)
