Headache Triggers

Headaches are annoying and all to common with the stresses of living.  Here are a few common triggers that lead to headaches.  Avoiding these the best you can is important.

  • Bosses- a stressful workplace boss or stressful co workers is a definite trigger for headaches and the stress causes the shoulder muscles to become tense and even can contribute to shallow breathing all of which reduce blood flow to the brain which is cause of dull annoying headaches.

  • Stressful Traffic can cause the shoulder and neck muscles to tense up which can trigger a tension headache

  • Dehydration is common as most people do not drink enough water especially in warmer climates or during a hot summer.  Dehydration causes headaches and irritability with many people unaware of the cause.  Many people report that they are aware of their dehydration but opt to not drink water because they do not want to have to use the bathroom during a busy workday or traveling.

  • Alcohol is a frequent trigger as man americans drink alcohol.  Alcohol is a diuretic which dehydrates the person but many alcohols contain toxins especially red wine which contains many nitrites which often trigger headaches even migraines.

  • Stressful emotional relationships- friends or family which encroach on personal space or are highly demanding or manipulative can easily trigger headaches.

  • Certain aged - cheeses can trigger a headache for some people especially if it is combined with a red wine which is very common.

  • Chocolate for some people can trigger a headache due to the high concentration of caffeine which can vasodilate the arteries which go to the head.

  • Caffeinated beverages especially those with artificial ingredients like energy drinks or strong expressos.
