Poop Headaches

I am embarrassed to say that I have experienced relief from migraines by doing a #2 many many times. I have been in the throes of an all-out attack ie, nausea, light-headed, light sensitivity, when the need to void hits me and even while I’m in the act, relief is immediate! I can actually feel the pressure lift and nausea go away and I feel lighter, my muscles feel fluid. I’ve mentioned it to my Physician but he had no explanation and found it “ very interesting”.
