Abstract
Primary exercise headache (PEH) is usually precipitated by prolonged physically strenuous exercise. The headache is usually bilateral, severe, and pulsating in character in the patients with exercise headache. The pathophysiological mechanisms of PEH are still unknown. Most investigators believe it is vascular in origin, hypothesizing that venous or arterial distension secondary to physical exercise is the pain-inducing mechanism. The jump-rope could also evoke PEH due to intracranial venous congestion from retrograde jugular venous flow. Indomethacin is known to be effective for the majority of the cases. This is the first case with primary exercise headache from the jump-rope in Korean children.
Key Words: Headache, Exercise, Jump rope
