It is not uncommon to have headaches every now and then. Everyone gets them and there is nothing to be afraid of. There is a big difference between everyday headaches and headache every day. The first one being a type of headache which anyone can get and isn’t in any way a chronic condition. The other one really means that you suffer form a headache every single day. It may look like it is the same thing at a first glance but there is a big difference. Your everyday headache is often quite mild when it comes to pain, but it still can ruin your day. And what don’t want is having your headache ruining your time at work or at home.
What causes my everyday headaches?
Well, it could actually be anything. The most typical triggers are often stress related tasks like work, your home environment (children is often involved), changes in weather or something you recently ate. Food trigger are probably the most common one (along with stress), many people who have a basic diet don’t suffer from food triggered headaches since they eat the right things. But the same person who tries to eat, for example cheese (old), a glass of wine or chocolate can get a headache shortly afterwards. By trying to stay of these things which can trigger your everyday headaches you can easily get rid of them and by having a “headache diary” can help you to find out what the trigger might be. I almost forgot to mention that alchohol is also a common trigger to everyday headaches and shouldn’t be overconsumed for any reason.
If you feel that the common triggers is not what might be triggering your headaches then I sugest that you make an appointment and go see a neurologist who can help you with your headaches. If the headaches somewhat get more persistent and they get more severe then you might have another condition. It could be a chronic condition and then you really should see a doctor. As long as it is a “everyday headache” you have nothing to be afraid of since it is very common.
