Common Headache Causes and Relief

A headache is a pain in the head sometimes neck or upper back pain may also be interpreted as a headache. It’s one of the most common complaints and may be frequent for some people.

The majority of headaches are no big deal. Some causes of headaches are stress, migraine, eye strain, dehydration, low blood sugar, and the common cold. Much rarer are headaches due to life-threatening conditions such as meningitis, encephalitis, cerebral aneurysms, extremely high blood pressure, and brain tumors.
Most headaches among women are caused by ever-fluctuating estrogen during menstrual years. This can occur prior to, or even during midcycle menstruation.

Headache treatment and relief is usually possible with just over-the-counter headache medicine like aspirin, acetaminophen (tylenol), or ibuprofen(motrin), although some specific forms of headaches (e.g., migraines) may demand other, more suitable treatment. It may be possible to relate the occurrence of a headache to other particular triggers (such as stress or particular foods), which can then be avoided.
