Cause and Solution Headache



Cause: Strong Scents

Strong smells — even nice ones — trigger migraines in many people. Why this happens is unclear,
but the odors may stimulate the nervous system. The most common culprits are paint, dust, perfume, and certain types of flowers

Strong Scents

Trigger: Warm Weather

When the temperature climbs, so does the likelihood of developing a migraine or other severe headache.
In one recent study, researchers found a 7.5% increase in headache risk for every 9 degrees Fahrenheit.

Low barometric pressure, which often precedes rain, was linked to a small bump in non-migraine headaches.

Hair Accessories

Cause : Hair Accessories

How you wear your hair can take a toll on your head. A tight ponytail may strain the connective tissue in the scalp,
leading to a hairdo headache. Headbands, braids, and tight-fitting hats can
create the same effect. If this is the cause of

your headache, letting your hair down usually brings fast relief.


Cause: Exercise

Strenuous exercise, including sex, can lead to exertion headaches. Physical exertion causes
blood vessels in the head, neck, and scalp to swell, producing a build-up in pressure.
Examples include jogger's headache and sex headache. These types of headaches are

most common in people who are susceptible to migraines.

Poor Posture

Cause: Poor Posture

You don't have to work up a sweat to build pressure in the head and neck muscles.
Slouching at your desk will do the job, too. Common forms of poor posture include hunching
your shoulders, using a chair with no lower-back support, staring at a monitor that is too low or too high,
and cradling a phone between your ear and shoulder. If you have frequent tension headaches,

take a good look at your workspace.


Cause : Cheese

One of the most common migraine triggers is aged cheese, including blue cheese, brie,
cheddar, feta, mozzarella, parmesan, and Swiss. The culprit is a substance called tyramine,
which forms when certain types of protein break down. The longer a food ages, the more tyramine it contains

Red Wine

Cause : Red Wine

Tyramine is also found in red wine and some liquors. Because alcohol increases blood flow to the brain,
the effects may be even more intense. If red wine is a trigger for you, but you'd like to enjoy a glass on

special occasions, ask your doctor about taking a preventive dose of medication.

Cold Cuts

Cause : Cold Cuts

Processed meats, such as cold cuts, have two strikes against them. They often contain tyramine,
as well as food additives called nitrates or nitrites. These additives appear to increase blood flow to the
brain in some people. Headaches caused by food additives are usually felt on both sides of the head
(in contrast to a classic migraine, which strikes one side at a

Skipping Meals

Cause : Skipping Meals

Hunger headaches aren't always obvious. If you skip a meal, your head could start to ache
before you realize you're hungry. The trouble is a dip in blood sugar. But don't try to cure a hunger headache

with a candy bar. Sweets cause blood sugar to spike and then drop even lower.


Cause : Smoking

Smoking is known to trigger headaches — and not just in the person holding the cigarette.
Secondhand smoke contains nicotine, which causes blood vessels in the brain to narrow.
Giving up cigarettes or reducing exposure to secondhand smoke appears especially helpful to patients with cluster headaches. These are extremely painful one-sided headaches that occur in groups


Cause : Caffeine

For the headache-prone, caffeine fits firmly into the category of "can't live with it, can't live without it."
In moderation, caffeine is often beneficial — in fact, it's found in many headache medications.
But chain-chugging coffee can be a cause of headaches. And, if you're hooked on caffeine, cutting back abruptly
may only
make things worse. Caffeine withdrawal is another headache trigger.

Identify Triggers

Solution: Identify Triggers

If you can identify your most common triggers, you may be able to cut off headaches before they start.
The best way to accomplish this is through a headache diary Keep a daily log of foods you eat, stressful events,
weather changes, and physical activity. Whenever you have a headache, record the time it starts
and stops.
This will
help you find patterns, so you can try to avoid your personal triggers.
