Nasty Post-Trip Headache
    #1240696 - 01/22/03 06:56 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Often after I trip, I get this terrible headache the next day or later the day of the trip. I usually never get headaches. What's causing this and what can I do to avoid it?

How often do you get headaches normally? Do you get any nausea with the headaches?

I'll try to take a stab at this one. Serotonin,the chemical that is structurally similar to psilocin,has a lot to do with blood vessels opening and closing. A lot of doctors think migraine headaches may have something to with dilated blood vessels in the head.After a trip,maybe your serotonin receptors may have upregulated and the veins in arteries in your head are too dilated,causing your headaches. See if a little mush will make your headaches go away.BTW, some people use psilocybin mushrooms for cluster headaches.

Then again,maybe it's a psychological thing...

People think that if you just say the word "hallucinations" it explains everything you want it to explain and eventually whatever it is you can't explain will just go away.It's just a word,it doesn't explain anything...

It could be dehydration, due to excess pissing/sweating.
Dehydration headaches are similar to alcohol hangovers.

One way to try to avoid them, is drink plenty of water during/after.

Good luck
