One of the most common reasons for people seeing their doctors regularly: headaches.

There are different reasons for headaches, and different types of headaches. Most headaches are not serious and can be easily treated. However, if left untreated, headaches can significantly affect your ability at work and in daily life (if the migraines are regular).

Tension Headache:

Tension headaches are described as having ‘band-like’ pressure across the temples. It can also spread into the scalp and neck.

The main feature of this headache is muscle tension, which creates the pressure across the forehead.


Taking medication for any of your illnesses can also be a major cause of headaches. Often, too much medication with little food intake becomes the reason for head pain.


Not having breakfast, lunch or dinner on time, starving throughout the day while working on a computer screen, or not having enough energy to continue work may be reasons for the head ache to trigger. Proper care needs to be taken of the body to prevent from headaches.


Too much caffeine can also give you a migraine, leading to headaches more often. Switch your daily intake of coffee with green tea or warm water with honey. If you’re a coffee person, have less cups of coffee in a day. Reduce the intake of caffeine to get rid of headaches.

Medication overuse:

Taking an overdose of medication may also result in headaches. Have the minimum required to keep your illness away.

Hormonal headaches:

Women appear to have more headaches during their menstruation period, or during menopause. Hormonal activity inside the body is changing, which results in ‘hormonal’ headaches.

Mental Health:

Do you have anxiety or depression? Check out your symptoms for both. Many people do not know the existence of mental diseases in their minds. It’s important to get physical and mental checkups regularly.


Passive smoking can also be a reason for headaches. Sitting in a room full of smoke, drugs, or any other unnecessary air pollutants that you are not used to may result in ‘environmentally affected headaches’.
