Tension Headache Information
Tension Headaches: Tension headaches are the most common type of headache and affect almost everyone at one time or another and are usually described as a pressure or ache. Tension headaches involve muscle strain or muscle spasms of the head and neck area and can develop in one localized area of the head, such as the temples, or may encircle the entire head like a band. Muscular or myogenic headache or myofascial headaches are more scientific names for tension headaches. The forehead is probably the most common location of tension headaches. Usually, tension headaches develop during the day and worsen in the evening. Tension headaches are aggravated by stressful situations, thereby inheriting the name of stress headaches, and improve with rest. Tension headaches may be a rare occurrence in some people or may be a common recurrent problem in others, recurring even on a daily basis. Tension headaches may be caused by eye strain, especially if there is an underlying problem with the eyesight, such as near-sightedness (known as myopia), far-sidedness (known as presbyopia), or astigmatism. Eyestrain is very common in today’s world of computer screens and small hand-held electrical communication devices. The intensity of tension headaches may vary from a mild annoyance to severe disabling pain. Generally, there are no other accompanying symptoms in tension headaches such as visual or hearing changes, numbness or weakness, difficulty speaking, nausea, vomiting, or loss of consciousness. Tension headaches are usually self-limited with or without treatment and may last from a few minutes to hours.
Tension Headache Treatments
Tension Headache Treatments: Of course, for headaches that are suspected to be a result of any of the life-threatening causes noted above, emergency services (911) should be contacted immediately. However, treatments of headaches due to benign causes vary and depend on the type of headache. Many causes of tension headache pain may be treated, through visual correction and/or improved medical treatment of high blood pressure. Tension headache pain may be improved with a change in lifestyle, a reduction of work hours, relaxation techniques, reduced exposure to computer screens, improved rest, and regular moderate exercise. Physical therapy and nerve injections are sometimes used to control headache pain.
The standard treatments for moderate to severe or acute or chronic headache pain are over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription narcotic and non-narcotic medication. As most patients who suffer with this type of headache pain soon realize, these treatments are usually not sufficient and many, especially the oral medications, are associated with serious side effects such as sedation, nausea, constipation, and even addiction. Extended use of some over-the counter (OTC) medications such as ibuprofen, naproxen, and acetaminophen may even result in stomach ulcers, kidney failure, heart failure, and liver failure. Many headache sufferers often search for alternative solutions to the usual over-the-counter and prescription medications.
