Hi Jeannie,

I have to agree with Paul. But I can spell the possibilities out for you. Asanas with the head down or low could cause light to severe head pain for anyone with high blood pressure, aneurysm, atherosclerosis, heart disease, heart related problems, eye problems, epilepsy, previous stroke, or sinus problems, or glaucoma! Not to push the panic button, but a severe headache with no known cause is a possible stroke symptom. Your student needs to see a doctor as soon as possible! You might not want to scare her to death, but you should stress that it is imperative to see a doctor real soon.

Peace,
