: Experiences? More info?

I was doing bench presses the Friday before last with a spotter, and pushed a bit harder than I ever had, and suddenly got the worst headache of my life. Blurred vision, throbbing with each heartbeat, the works.
It dulled after a few minutes, and I was able to complete the rest of my workout at much lowered intensity.
That'd be fine, if it didn't come back the next time I lifted out anywhere near failure the following Sunday, and so I took a week break, started lifting again today, and it's still threatening to come back if I approach my failure point.
Going to a doctor tomorrow or the day after, but would like personal info and experiences on the matter.
