9 Causes of Headaches You Probably Don’t Expect

Migraines and headaches are among the most prevalent disorders in the US, with over 15 million people affected. What’s even more interesting is the extensive range of headache causes. Some of them you’ve probably heard of before, such as underlying conditions like brain injury and meningitis or fatigue. 

However, there are some surprising causes of headaches. We will take a closer look at these; plus, the natural healing option you can seek for Redwood City CA migraine relief.

9 Surprising Reasons Behind Your Headaches 

  1. Caffeine intake – Excessive or lack of caffeine intake and caffeine allergy can trigger mild to severe bouts of migraines or headaches. 
  2. Dental problems – Headaches and muscle clenching can result from dental problems like jaw structure issues, toothache, oral infection, and tooth cavity. 
  3. Sleeping wrong – Did you wake up with a bad headache? It might because of poor sleeping positions like the fetal position or sleeping with your arm placed over your head.  
  4. Sinusitis – Swelling sinuses can also trigger your headaches. 
  5. Cold – Some refer to it as brain freeze or ice cream head pain. However, you can also experience the same sensation when exposed to cold stimuli such as snow.
  6. Menstrual cycle – If you’re a woman, you’re most likely familiar with menstrual cycle induced headaches. It often happens because of hormonal changes in the body. 
  7. Excessive sleep – Sometimes, too much sleep can result in a bad head pain. It most likely happens because of low blood sugar because you sleep through breakfast and lunch.  
  8. Sex – Some people experience pain in their head or neck during orgasm, triggering severe headaches. It could happen because of the sudden surge of blood or the muscle tension on the neck.
  9. Pain reliever abuse – Excessive intake of pain relievers such as NSAIDs can cause rebound headaches. It forces you to become dependent on the drug and leaves you stuck in a vicious cycle of pain.
