Throbbing vein in the temple, headache during weight training. Is this alarming?

I do cardio and weight training everyday for about 4 months now and just this week I started feeling a throbbing/pulsating vein in my left temple that turn into an excruciating headache while doing weight training exercises. I stop when the throbbing intensifies but a painful headache follows after. I m 44, female and very active. Is this alarming?

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
Not alarming actually, but you do need to get investigated. MRI scan of the brain will be required as this could be due to an aneurysm. However there are other trivial reasons as well like hypotension or cervical vertebra degeneration etc.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
