Default Re: Tension Headaches

Yeah, it's generally a pattern: I stress out, I tense up emotionally, I tense up physically, I overwork myself, tadah tension headache for 7 hours I don't think there are any masuses around me and even if there were I'd have no way of getting ther or money to pay for it...I'll probably see a doctor for it b/c they really are getting too frequent for comfort....

Yeah, that generally allround sucks. And as for the masseuse (SP!) thing, a physiotherapist could probably do better (they know more about muscles etc), and from what I remember from going to them, they aren't that expensive, and I'm sure if you asked your doctor about them he could refer a few.
As for meds for the headaches, something with a general painkiller (slightly stronger than the over the counter stuff, depending on the severity of the headaches) and an anti-imflamitory would probably work.
