tension headaches treatment
Have ever you experienced a throbbing headache before an exam, interview or other stressful event?
Stress and anxiety are the most common triggers of migraines and tension headaches.
The more you think of a stressful situation the more you will tense yourself thus making your pain worse.
This vicious circle can go on especially if you have had a previous experience with a similar pain before and anticipate that the pain is going to be bad.
It is believed amongst medical professionals that changes in the blood flow to the brain are the most likely cause of migraine.
This is a more serious form of headache than a tension headache which is caused by muscle tension. A migraine can last from a couple of hours up to 72 hours in some cases.
The most common symptom of migraine is a throbbing pain in one or both sides of the head.
Other symptoms such as distorted vision, neck pain, high sensitivity to smells and feeling nauseous are also associated with migraine.
If you regularly suffer from tension headaches or migraines you know how much they can disrupt your life.
You may have to be absent from work or stop everyday activities and this can have a significant negative impact on your life.
It is important to rule out any medical cause of your headache as it can be a symptom of a serious medical condition. This should be done before seeking help from any complementary therapy.
