It’s possible that your headaches are caused by a high level of stress in your life. If that’s the case, then you should think about ways that you can reduce the stress that you are experiencing. This could mean that you need to think about changing your career or even reevaluating people and the roles that they play in your life. Stress will often lead to tension headaches which feel like an elastic band being squeezed over your head and tightening. It usually also means that the focus of the pain is around the sides of the head near the temples. 


Are you suffering from tinnitus? This can definitely cause some nasty headaches that you might not be prepared for. Tinnitus causes you to hear noises that aren’t actually there. This could be anything from the ringing of a bell to a buzzing or whistling. There’s no set rule for noise that you are going to hear. It could be anything. Tinnitus can be quite loud and may get louder overtime. It can be loud enough to wake you up in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, in most cases, this condition is not curable. However, it can be treated with options like retraining therapy. This helps you recognise the noise as something that should be ignored. 


You might also find that your headaches are caused by an issue with your eyesight. It could just be the simple matter that you need glasses. An optometrist can help here and ensure that you do get the full support that you need including the right pair of glasses. It’s worth noting that your eyesight can either change gradually or suddenly. That’s why you should make sure that you are getting your eyes checked regularly, usually about once every year. If you do this, you’ll be able to make sure that things don’t start to develop without you noticing it.

Something Else 

Of course, it’s always possible that your headaches are being caused by something else entirely. Believe it or not, headaches can be the first sign that something is not quite right. That’s why you might want to think about visiting a doctor. You should definitely take this step if your headaches occur suddenly or get worse randomly. It can also be worth getting checked out by a doctor if your headaches started to get worse after an incident or injury. It’s likely that doctors will complete an MRI to make sure that nothing nasty is lurking underneath the surface. 

We hope this helps you understand some of the issues that might be causing you to experience headaches. Once you understand the cause you will be able to find the right solution and stop these issues plaguing your life.
