So the HAs happening in the shitter are from low BP not high?Anytime you bare down and push through your abdomen like strain to poop (valsalva) will cause a drop in blood pressure as well.
This is part of the reason that ALOT of have some sort of cardiac event on the toilet.
(It can also be used to give false reading on a polygraph)
Having a blood pressure drop can trigger a headache from several reasons including hypoxia ranging from ringing ear to passing out.
Depending when the "pressure change" is happening would more explain what the exact cause is. If it happens when in a set then it could very well be a high pressure spike , if it comes on after the set it could be low pressure
A decent blood pressure monitor is a worthy investment in my opinion , right behind a blood glucose meter
