Headaches generally have causes which range from stress, tension, drug abuse, overuse of medications, exhaustion, loud noises etc.
To some people, having a migraine is more painful than lying on the sick bed, it can be that bad.
When it comes to sexual issues, migraine is a prove that trouble in your head can mean trouble in your bed. When you have a migraine, you can’t seem to do any other thing, not even sex.
Many stimuli, from sunlight to lightning, can trigger migraines. Meanwhile, about 1 percent of the population suffers from headaches caused by sex, this is a very small percentage.
Migraine renders you incapable of doing what you normally do, due to the pain it induces on the whole body.
