Why Do I Have a Constant Headache?
What is a Headache? Headaches are described as a symptom of pain in the head or neck region. There are many different types of headaches, such as migraines, tension-type headaches, and cluster headaches.
But did you know the most common underlying cause of frequent headaches is a problem in the upper neck? Learn more at our class right here!
We all experience headaches at any point in our life. Headaches are mild and temporary exasperation, some people have headaches almost every day and if it’s severe they probably have tried everything and anything to get rid of it! If you have a headache for 15 days or more in one month then you have chronic daily headaches.
Here’s the kicker, if you have ongoing headaches, you are more likely to have anxiety, sleep disorders, depression, and other physical problems.
If you have a headache right now just by reading, stop. Call/text us at 808-369-9733. We can help!
What kind of headaches are you experiencing?
Prolong Tension or Stress Headache: Due to the feeling of being overwhelmed, worried or run-down and can affect people of all ages, genders, and circumstances. According to the American Psychological Association if untreated chronic stress can result in serious health conditions including anxiety, high blood pressure, weakened immune system, insomnia, and muscle pain.
Migraines: This severe type of headache that won’t go away for days or even weeks. People experience vision changes or bright flash before the pain start. Then once the headache starts, symptoms are light and sound sensitivity, sensitive to fragrances, pain behind the eyes, throbbing pain both sides of the head, and nausea.
Cluster Headaches: This headache that can be more severe than a migraine, but usually doesn’t last as long. The cause is unknown. It is a series of short but extremely painful headaches that tend to occur every day for weeks or months in patterns or clusters. A nerve in your face is involved, creating intense pain around one of your eyes. Most men get this type of headaches before the age of 30. It can disappear for months or years but can come back anytime without any signs.
Cervicogenic Headaches: A pain rooted coming from the neck or cervical spine. The headache will just stay there if the underlying cause is not treated. This kind of headaches can be caused by your posture when you sleep, nerve problems, injuries, bone fractures, arthritis, and muscle in your neck. The pain in your head that you are suffering is actually from one of your systems in your body.
“Taking care of yourself can help relieve headaches.”
Prevention: Chill out on the OTC (over the counter) MEDS. Taking more than twice a week of over the counter medications can increase the frequency and seriousness of headaches.
Rest well: Seven to eight hours of sleep every night. Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day.
Avoid triggers: Taking down notes can help you calculate or manage what triggers the headache so you can avoid it.
Avoid foods or drinks that may trigger the headaches like those that have caffeine.
Reduce stress: Be organized and optimistic at all times. Regular exercise such as walking, yoga, swimming, meditation can improve mental well being and reduce stress.
