Not to make it sound like I run around crying all the time, but...lately, when I do, I get headaches instantly.

I don't want anyone to think I have some tragic life, but for my whole life, I've teared up over sad songs, right now...watching the stories on Long Island Medium. For maybe the last few weeks, I will get an instant headache when I do. It isn't like I'm bawling hard or anything, or like I'm crying a long time (maybe 30 seconds of tearing up)...but the headache stays.

What's the deal? Does anyone else have this happen?

  • Weird! Are you dehydrated? Need salt?

  • LOL That's what I thought, too, Staci. I figured I had to be missing something since it just started happening out of nowhere, but I just googled "headaches when I cry" and there are a TON of sites that talk about it! LOL. I thought I was a nutcase or something, but it looks really common.

  • It could be sinus congestion.
