    Red face Headache

    I've had a headache for a few days and keep worrying. It's tense at both ends and I can feel the veins pulsating and my head feels crushed, tight, squeezed.

    I feel like I am on a boat sea sick with this horrible head tension...like a constant headache and I'm worried it's serious?

    Anybody else had this?

    Hi Phil

    I thought you had headaches for a while now?

    Sounds like a tension headache to me though

    Yes it's been quite bad the last few months again. I took paracetamol last night but it never helped much.

    Re: Headache

    Also found this:

    Understanding your headache triggers can help you avoid situations that cause your headaches. A headache diary can help you identify your headache triggers. When you get a headache, write down the day and time the pain began. The diary should include notes about what you ate and drank in the last 24 hours, how much you slept and when, and what was going on in your life immediately before the pain started. For example, were you under any unusual stress? Also include information about how long the headache lasted, and what made it stop.

    Hot or cold showers or baths may relieve a headache for some people. You may need to make lifestyle changes if you have chronic tension headaches. This may include changing your sleep habits (usually to get more sleep), increasing exercise, and stretching the neck and back muscles. In some situations, you may need to change your job or recreational habits.

    Re: Headache

    Could be tension-related Phil but tension headaches don't usually "pulsate". Could be migraine-type headaches set off by stress/anxiety. Important thing is not to let it worry you even more because that will make it worse for sure.

    Thanks. No I mean the veins on my head pulsate...

    Maybe it is tension.

    Re: Headache

    Well, tension can cause tension headaches and migraines, so I reckon the important thing is to concentrate on your stress levels Phil. Do you exercise at all? Even going for a long walk helps to de-stress sometimes. It acts as a distraction and a release of pent up energy. Try it and I'm sure you'll feel the difference. Take care mate.

    Re: Headache

    Does anybody know how to stop these headaches properly? Every Time I worry about my symptoms the veins just pulse up and I'm sitting with a sore head and sometimes paracetamol doesn't even help.

    I noticed that putting my hands on the side of my head makes the symptoms worse. It's got worse too as I can feel the tension to my draw, right upto my ear and any panic attack seems to come with these pulsing head veins
