I experience tension headaches quite a bit, and I can tell that it’s that type of headache because the back of my neck will be sore in addition to my head. (And drinking water doesn’t make it go away).
I also get dehydration headaches (I made that term up). I know I have those when, after drinking some water, it magically disappears.
Some weeks I can have a headache everyday, but they go away after a few minutes of resting my eyes, drinking water or stretching. Once in while I get REALLY bad headaches (not migraines), and they start off mild at around 1pm, then boom! I’m at a 10 on the pain scale by 4pm. To remedy those I take a warm shower, take medicine and go to sleep. Those are the ones I hate.
One day I wanted to know how to prevent headaches and came across this slideshow on Health.com. It’s a list of 21 ways to prevent and treat headaches, and most of the ideas I put into practice, but I still get them. To me, it’s nothing to be concerned about.
But maybe I should address the really bad ones, huh?
Are you a headache sufferer like me? Besides the obvious of drinking more fluids and getting enough sleep, how do you prevent headaches?
