Headaches are common for some of us and we experience it often. But, are you aware that there is something called as tension-type headache, the most common headache type which we assume as normal, everyday headache?
The person experiencing tension headache experiences a constant ache on both sides of the head, feels the neck muscles tighten and has a feeling of pressure behind the eyes. Although not a severe headache form that prevents you from doing your everyday chores, it can last anywhere between 30 minutes, several hours or even days together.
Who is Prone to Tension Headaches?
You and I are prone to tension headaches at some point in life. It can develop at any age and affect anyone, but teenagers and adults are likelier to be affected and women tend to suffer more from them more commonly than men.
Almost 2 or 3 in every 100 adults experience tension headaches more than 15 times in a month continuously for a period of 3 months. Such headaches are called as chronic tension-type headaches.
The primary reason for such headaches is unknown, although experts feel that stress, tension or heightened emotions triggers one. Other reasons include tiredness, poor posture, dehydration, skipping meals, noise, certain smells, bright sunlight and anxiety.
