Everyday, millions of people suffer from the dreaded headache sending you to grab that pill you oh so love to take away the pain. The fast paced lifestyle we all engage in doesn’t help and the stresses of the day just keep piling up leaving us weak and fatigued. Readily available OTC drugs may offer relief but that may not be the best solution for the dreaded headache. Your lifestyle may be the primary cause adding the stress you go through each and everyday, might be the culprit.
Men are less likely to suffer from chronic pain due to extreme activities than men due to the hormone testosterone which has been shown to help lessen the damage to muscles and tissue, thus leaving women to suffer more. Statistically, women suffer an average of 15 episodes that can lead to depression due to their biology, having them experience fluctuations in their hormonal levels each menstrual cycle.
Headaches, if they are persistent enough should be consulted to a health professional for it may be a sign of underlying disease, or it may just be you drinking too much coffee through the day to keep you awake at your boring desk job!?!
