Headaches are as common as a bad day at the office. The expansion of blood vessels and tightening of muscles in the head causes headache pain. This pain may be generalized (all over) or localized (in one area) and may range from mild to severe. Some headaches have a known cause, while others, like migraine headaches, do not.
Diary of a Headache
A headache diary is a great way to identify the type of headache you're suffering from. By keeping tabs on your headaches, you'll be able to identify headache triggers. Then, with the information you record, you and your doctor can better diagnose and treat your headaches.
Water to Cool Your Head
Dehydration can be a common cause of headaches. You should genarally follow the "8 x 8" rule. That means drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day. In cases where it is very hot out, you may require more. It's best to stick to water, as other fluids could contain ingredients that trigger headaches.
