@harry A tension headache is the most common type of headache. It can cause mild, moderate, or intense pain behind your eyes and in your head and neck. Some people say that a tension headache feels like a tight band around their forehead. Most people who experience tension headaches have episodic headaches. These occur one or two times per month on average. However, tension headaches can also be chronic. You can start by drinking more water. You may be dehydrated and need to increase your water intake. Also, you should consider how much sleep you’re getting. Lack of sleep can lead to tension headaches. And make sure you didn’t skip any meals, which can trigger headaches. If none of those strategies work, then you can take over-the-counter (OTC) pain medications, such as ibuprofen or aspirin, to get rid of a tension headache. However, these should only be used occasionally.
