Do you ever wake up to sensitive eyes, a stiff neck or a throbbing head? Sometimes a headache can start the moment you wake up and last all day. They can be extremely painful and can even impair your normal level of productivity during the day. Many headaches can stem from very simple origin points. It is important that you understand your body well enough to be able to pinpoint exactly where your headaches come from so that you can do the necessary precautions to either prevent them from happening, or get rid of them after they’ve become a bother.
Many people suffer from headaches from dehydration. Make sure you are consuming the proper amount of fluids throughout the day so that your brain is getting the proper blood flow it needs in order to function properly. When you are dehydrated, your brain essentially shrinks away from your skull and causes your pain receptors react. Typically, a headache stemming from dehydration feels like a heavy throbbing pain. In order to get rid of these types of headaches, try to drink a glass of water every hour or so. This will also keep your body hydrated and prevent you from any other kinds of sickness such as an upset stomach or achy muscles.
Many people also get headaches from lack eating or drinking something they normally have on a daily basis. This is especially present with the consumption of caffeine. In order to get rid of these headaches, many people just drink something that contains caffeine such as coffee or soda. Our family doctors recommend that the best way to avoid these headaches in general is to rid your body of caffeine overall. If you are currently on a diet that has caffeine in it and want to get rid of it, ease into the transition. Slowly move toward other consumables that help you stay awake such as water or fruit. Remember that your body may have developed a dependency on caffeine, as it is very addictive, so take your time to cleanse your body of it. There are other ways to stay awake during the day. If you make other lifestyle changes such as being active and getting the right amount of sleep every night, you are more likely to stay awake and be productive throughout the next day.
Easy changes like these in your life can save you the pain of a nasty headache, all it takes is a little effort!
