Lucinda Allen, from Stourbridge, is now confined to a wheelchair after becoming paralysed down the left-hand side of her body after a headache during sex left her in agony.

The 43-year-old, who was pregnant at the time, was rushed to the hospital and put in a coma, while doctors performed a craniotomy to relieve pressure on her brain.

Six days later she was woken from the coma, to find out her baby was unharmed and three months later gave birth to baby Marri-Alice in November 2012.

She hopes that stem cell therapy may one day help her regain movement but, in the meantime, wants to raise awareness of the potential warning signs of headaches during sex.

‘Nobody talks about post-orgasm head pain,’ she told a reporter.

‘That’s understandable. But I want to raise awareness of how it can be a warning sign.

‘Because of it, I have lost a huge part of me – my career, any siblings my daughter may have had.’

Lucinda had five strokes in total that doctors believe were caused by a congenital abnormality in a blood vessel that also caused her to have headaches after climaxing during sex.

Headaches after sex are believed to be caused by a leak of spinal fluid from the skull into the spine, alleviated by lying down.

Some neurologists believe HSA (Headache Associated with Sexual Activity) can be caused by an increased pressure through exertion.

Lucinda’s neurosurgeon, Alessandro Paluzzi, said her condition was unusual and caused by a bleed inside the brain instead of on the surface.

You should know What thunderclap headaches are… Right?

Thunderclap headaches strike suddenly and severely and can occur anywhere in the head, and also involve the neck and lower back.

They can be accompanied by nausea, vomiting and loss of consciousness and last up to 10 days.

According to the Mayo Clinic, headaches can occur during sex just before or during an orgasm.

It is usually nothing to worry about, but can be a sign of something more serious. So it is advised to get it checked out.
