Headaches

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy with this crazy Covid virus. I have a quick question I have been having constant tension headaches for the last 2 and a half weeks. I am not sure why. I am a teacher and have been using my computer a lot and looking at 2 screens due to remote learning. It has not been easy. I have stressed with work and the constant changes. I also had a filling on my tooth due to a cavity (the headaches started around the time I got my filling and started to use 2 screens) I am very concerned about this headache, it is constant it feels like a tension headache in the front and back of my head. It feels like a tight band or pressure feeling on my head. I also feel it above my eyebrows. My neck feels tense, and to be honest I am starting to freak out! All I am thinking about is this a brain tumor? a brain aneurysm? something else serious? My husband and chiropractor said that my headaches are due to stress and tension, but why have they not gone away yet? I feel them everyday and it's frustrating. the only way i get relief is by taking some advil or tylenol. I mentioned it to my doctor and he said it's most likely tension. I am overwhelmed with fear right now. What if  Im dying...please help me!

Hi I've had headaches since my early teens and they're just a part of life for me now. Stress can be a factor but often for me the weather is too. Is there a high pollen or mold count in your area or has there been a lot of rain? The best thing is always to see a doctor but if I can, I try to help people relax a bit before they see them. Did you see your doctor in person or remotely?

I have been having these headaches for the last 2 weeks. I had blood not to long ago and it was overall normal except for a little high cholesterol. My blood pressure is normal too. Im not sure whats going on. I have working on the computer for like 9 hours a day looking at two screens and not sure if its the posture or the constant computer screen causing the headache. Im freaking out a bit not going to lie since i dont tend to have headaches very often.

Probably from the neck tension. Could be from the way you are sitting to the way you are sleeping.

Hello!

I hope you are doing well now. 

Tension and stress headaches keep on coming back until you are completely stress free. Please follow these simple steps and you will feel the difference soon. 

1) Never take stress. the golden rule as always. No over-thinking. 

2) Massage your head and forehead gently and press the pressure points. This will increase blood flow and nutrients to your brain. 

3) Breathing exercises a re great too. 

4)Take your nutrients and check if you are low on iron or Folic acid. 

These tips helped me when I use to have tension headaches. please do eye rolling exercises after every 15 minutes and take a short break from screen. If you have work-related stress , then check these tips that really works  https://ezcareclinic.com/3-ways-to-deal-with-work-anxiety-according-to-top-18-experts/

I will be of no help as I’m currently experiencing the same symptoms and anxieties. I also work in a school as an administrator and spend my entire day on a computer. I just wanted to say that you’re not alone and I hope you find peace soon. ❤️
