My boyfriend burst a blood vessel in his eye while doing an inverted weightlifting exercise today. Is this something to worry about?
If it were me, I'd ask my doctor, but he's a guy and doesn't go in regularly unless something truly terrifying happens. He says, "I tried some inverted exercise that didn't seem too difficult - it was the blood rush to my head."
Athletic folks: is this something worth getting checked out (re: blood pressure or something else), or just a thing that happens when you don't coddle your body the way I do? He's in his mid-twenties, healthy as far as he knows, and has been working out regularly for about nine months (CrossFit).
