Then the feeling came –as always accompanied by that steel dagger of pain. At the same moment, his stomach seemed to take on weight and his bowels locked in sick, griping agony.
The feeling passed … but not the headache. The headache would get worse and worse until it was a smashing weight, sending red pain through his head and neck with every pulsebeat.

a smashing weight means a heavy weight, right?

Thank you.
