Hassled About Tension Headaches?

Nearly 90 percent of all headaches are tension headaches. That should give you some indication of the stress levels that individuals experience in their personal as well as professional life. As the name suggests, tension headaches are mostly brought on when the person feels worried, frustrated or anxious. Most tension headaches feel like a band tightening around the forehead. The pain is usually not debilitating but it is a dull, nagging headache that impacts the whole head and the top of the eyebrows.

There are two categories of tension headaches. If the headache occurs 2 to 3 times a month, it is knows as an episodic headache. However, if the pain lasts for more than 15 days a month, it is considered a chronic condition and some form of treatment becomes essential.

  • Identifying the root cause of the stress and finding realistic ways to manage it
  • Eating and sleeping on time
  • Reducing caffeine
  • Playing a sport, exercising regularly
