  • Health risks related to singing too hard

    Hey guys, I just wanted to find out if there are any health risks related to singing too hard. Sometimes when I belt it out I get a bizarre sensation in my head, get mild chest pain and feel as though I'm going to pass out. Am I damaging my system by doing this or is there nothing to worry about?

    Just FYI I'm a pretty healthy and active person that plays lots of sports in which I never have issues with chest pain or anything like that.

    Do you have any voice training?

    Sometimes when people sing improperly then issues may arise. I'm not completely certain what's going with you, but I suspect that you may be holding unnecessary tension, possibly in your neck. Chest pain is a weird one, but maybe its linked to improper body posture. For example if your body is slouching and your ribcage is collapsed then there is no space for your lungs to expand and might be strain on your chest. That's just my guess anyway.

    Also, can you elaborate on the bizarre head sensation?

      Probably getting lightheaded/dizzy.

        I took singing lessons for a brief period but they weren't very good and other than that I have no training. The sensation in my head is hard to explain but it kinda feels like fluid rushing around the inside of my scalp as I release whatever note I was singing. I usually get all three sensations at the same time.

            When I sing hard I fell awesome and I get a woody!!!

            Being serious now...go see a doctor! I am not in good shape right now and I go balls out every week, outdoors, in the Summer sun, for over 4 hours and I never feel chest pains.

              You too?

              But yeah, see a doctor man. Do you have stage fright?...sounds like panic attack symptoms..or a stroke. Either way, no bueno dude. That sucks..
              I like when they say a movie is inspired by a true story. That's kind of silly. "Hey, did you hear that story about that lady who drove her car into the lake with her kids and they all drowned?" "Yeah, I did, and you know what - that inspires me to write a movie about a gorilla!"

                  You just have to find the right voice teacher to steer you in the right direction! Where are you located? I'm sure we can find you a good teacher.

                  As for health issues, if you're perfectly healthy aside from being in your "singing mode", then I doubt your doctor can help (personally, my own doctor would probably say that I'm 'crazy' ) and I'm not sure if there's a specialist for this kinda thing. You're probably forcing tension in some way.
