Stress can be a contributing factor of headaches; in fact, it can even cause them to occur in the first place. Many people find that when they can effectively manage their stress, they can tame their headaches and reduce headache pain. A stress headache sometimes referred to as a tension headache, is different than a migraine headache in that it does not typically induce nausea, vomiting, or a sensitivity to light as migraines frequently do. Even though the pain of these headaches may be managed, it's ideal if you can prevent them through stress management.

1. What Is a Stress Headache?

A stress headache is one of the most common types of headache pain. It can cause some people to feel as though there is a tight band around their head. Some people experience neck pain or intense pain behind their eyes. From a physiological standpoint, these episodic headaches are caused by muscle contractions in the head and neck. But what causes these muscles to contract? Many things—staring too long at a computer, reading too long, feeling cold, suffering the onset of an infection, taking in too much caffeine, and experiencing emotional stress.
