How it works
A tension headache is the type most of us are used to experiencing. The tension headache may vary in severity of pain and discomfort, but is generally distracting and can make you feel stressed, anxious and unable to concentrate or socialise properly.
The exact cause can be unclear, but headaches are usually linked to stress, tiredness, poor posture or dehydration. Excessive caffeine or sugar intake – and indeed other stimulants – can also be contributing factors.
