Tension Headaches

Oct 23, 2014 7:51 AM

I suffer from what the doctor calls tension headaches. They make my teeth, eyes and head hurt. They can last for weeks and then go away for months. does anyone else suffer similarly?

Yes, I get them frequently. Haven't found much that helps but sometimes aromatherapy can take the edge off :-)

lots of eucalyptus and menthol oils ... I usually smell like a cough drop :) massage ur neck and scalp, my scalp sometimes hurts more the the headache. I have problems with muscle tension and that includes my head. no fun. hope ur getting a break soon!
