What's Causing Your Headache?

There are many reasons for having a headache. Stress is one of them. Allergies can cause them as well as many other causes like eye strain. Headaches are usually a symptom rather than a disease, although migraines can be considered a disease and can even predispose you to a stroke.Here are a few common causes of headaches according to Health.com:

A recent study found that women who were overweight had a 35% greater risk of having frequent headaches than those who were not overweight. The higher the body mass index, the greater chances of getting headaches. A BMI of 40 will up your chances of headaches to 80%.

Your personality can trigger headaches and it's not just anger issues. If you tend to be anal or obsessive and rigid, it can increase your chances of getting a headache quite a bit. Try to meditate and be calm to avoid getting a headache.

"I have a headache" is the old joke about why women don't want to have sex. But sex, especially the aggressive kind, can actually trigger a headache. That type of headache may be caused by overexerting yourself, sort of like the kind that weightlifters get.

Believe it or not, a nice relaxing weekend can actually give you a headache. It's called a "letdown" headache. They are caused by you not following your normal routine. Try to at least follow your normal pattern of sleep if you don't want to get a letdown headache.

Dehydration and fumes from certain kinds of paint can also make your head ache. Try to get the newer types of paint that have less volatile fumes.
