Is there anyone in the world who has never had a headache? In some cases, we can solve this pesky problem by ourselves, yet sometimes we should see a doctor immediately.
With this in mind, we has put together a detailed guide to help you identify the type of headache you have as well as the best strategy for pain relief.
This is the most frequent type of headache in the world: everyone has experienced it at least once in their life.
Symptoms. Usually, this is a mild non-throbbing pain. Tension headaches often cause a pressure sensation that feels like you’re wearing a tight band around your forehead. Most often, the intensity of the pain increases from morning to evening.
Causes. Factors that seem to contribute to tension headaches are severe stress, fatigue, poor posture, and holding the head in an improper position for a long time. Chronic tension headaches are rare and are often associated with head or neck injuries.
Treatment. You can take any appropriate painkiller to get rid of a tension headache. However, this should only be used occasionally. If headaches occur frequently and last for a long time, consult your doctor. Also, try to be physically active, stretch your shoulders and neck regularly, and spend more time outdoors.
