Tension headache is the most common type of headache in the world. It impacts almost all individuals. Some people get headaches once a year or even less, while others may suffer from tension headaches on a daily basis.
Unlike migraines, tension headaches are not severe and do not generally cause people to have to be in a dark quiet room lying down. Nonetheless, they can impact people’s lives, prevent them from doing many activities, and lead to suffering which is treatable.
Tension headaches affect people on both sides of the head and feel like a pressure or dull pain causing discomfort. Often, it is worse in the evenings.
People may have other types of headaches in addition to tension headaches. Furthermore, multiple things such as stress, poor sleep, neck pain, other conditions, and even other types of headaches can lead to worse tension headaches.
There are many treatments available that can get to the underlying cause of the headaches along with improving pain and quality of life.
