A headache is a pain that can make you feel miserable for a long time, especially in those cases when it lasts for days or even over a week. When you are facing a chronic migraine, the nasty situation can even go on for months and can be difficult to get rid of it.
Types and Causes
There are several causes for headaches and most probably everyone has experienced one earlier or later in life. They may be due to some external factors such as:
- lack of water;
- too much smoking;
- oversleeping or lack of sleep;
- alcohol in excess;
- excessive use of painkillers;
- an injury;
- a minor condition (neck strain);
- internal conditions like blood vessels constriction;
- genetic inheritance;
- weird neuronal activity.
When such a headache tends to ruin your day, your first thought would probably be to take an over-the-counter pill and get on with your life. But that is not the smartest decision because conventional drugs create addiction and some pharmaceutical companies are not producing them naturally. When you start taking more and more, it will be extremely hard for you to stop. Also, these drugs will help you to get rid of a headache, but during the time, because your body will adapt to them, may become inefficient. So you may want to consider resisting the urge of swallowing that little medicine (which is very effective, especially in the beginning, when you start taking drugs) and maybe go for some of the following home remedies for headaches.
