    ATension Headache. Seen amongsts service class

    Tension headache


    Introduction:

    Tension headaches are very common, affecting up to 78% of the general population. Unfortunately, they're also among the most neglected and difficult types of headaches to treat. Pain is caused by tightness (contraction) of your neck, and scalp muscles. With a tension headache, the pain often starts at the back of your head and moves forward, so that it eventually includes your neck, scalp, and head. It' s often described as feeling like you have a tight band across your head. It may be caused by staying in one position for a long time, such as in reading, using a computer, or playing video games. It may be also caused by stress, but sometimes there is no obvious cause. If your headaches happen 15 or more days in a month for several months, they are considered chronic tension headaches.


    Signs and Symptoms:



    • Headache starts at the back of your head and spreads forward
    • Dull pressure or a squeezing pain, often described as a tight band around the head
    • Muscles in your neck, shoulders, and jaw can feel tight and sore
    • Affects both sides of your head equally
    • May have difficulty sleeping or eating


    Causes:

    Researchers aren't clear on exactly what causes a tension headache. For years, scientists thought that it was caused by tightening the muscles in your shoulders, neck, scalp, and jaw when you are tense. But new tests that measure muscle tension have shown that the muscles of people with tension headaches aren' t any tighter. Newer theories suggest tension headaches are caused by changes in brain chemicals (neurotransmitters, including serotonin), similar to what happens with a migraine. Scientists don' t know why the levels of neurotransmitters go up and down, but they think it activates pain pathways in the brain. Tight muscles may help trigger the changes in neurotransmitters, or muscle tightness may be a result of fluctuating levels of brain chemicals.
    Triggers may include:

    • Stress
    • Depression
    • Anxiety
    • Holding your head in one position for a long time (like using a computer)
    • Sleeping in an awkward position or in a cold room
    • Eye strain
    • Fatigue
    • Overexertion
    • Skipping meals
    • Head or neck injury, even years after the injury
    • Clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth (bruxism)
    • Medications, including some headache medications (leading to rebound headaches)
    • Arthritis
