How often do you get a headache?

We all get them, and we all hate them. Headaches, they’re the worst!

They can be mild and annoying, or extremely painful and immobilizing. They can be caused by inflammation or irritation around the brain, or they can be caused by colds or the flu, muscle stiffness, jaw pain, trauma to your head or neck, sinus infections or issues, or infections.

If you get headaches often, try the highly-rated Headache Hat!

Headaches can also be caused by toxins, such as the consumption of alcohol, tobacco or spoiled foods, and they can be the first sign of environmental poisons. They can also be caused by substance abuse or withdrawal (we are familiar with caffeine-withdrawal headaches; are you?).

How often do you get a headache? Are they usually mild or intense? Do you get those “Icepick headaches” that come in spurts and last only a few seconds? Tell us in the poll below, and please be patient if it takes a moment to load.

Whenever it is stormy or humid weather; my head is a built in barometer. 🙁 … no matter the season …

I haven’t had a physical headache in such a long time I don’t remember the last one, but I do get a “brain freeze” everytime I eat Ice Cream. Don’t worry, the rest of my lower body, in particular my right knee makes up for the missing headaches……

I rarely have any kind of headache BUT when I hike at altitude (over 5,000′) I get twinges in my temples that leave as soon as I drink water – a sign of dehydration.

I used to get sinus headaches frequently.
Since I began using a sinus flush I have not experienced a sinus headache or that ‘stuffed up’ feeling in my head.
This has really been a blessing for me.

Hi, Jim. Years ago I had almost daily sinus headaches. I started taking two generic (regular) Sudafed every morning, and it keeps my sinuses clear and no more headaches. But if I miss the pseudoephedrine for a couple of days, the headaches return. —Diane at

I can’t remember the last time I had a legitimate headache – which wasn’t self induced that is! It has been several years for either one! Never really had many headaches thruout my life.

When I was younger I had headaches most every day until I got old enough to retire. Now though it’s unusual to have a head ache and back and shoulders aches have taken over.

But just thinking about what is going on in our country makes my head hurt. (Actually, it’s been regularly hurting since, hmmmm, early 2017.) It seems to abate every time I stop reading the news. Maybe eye fatigue? Yeah that’s it.

Mine started in 2008, miracle cure on 2017! Actually I had a pain in my rear until 2017 too.

The only time I can remember having a headache is when I had the flu, 25 years ago. My husband has them pretty often.

I always have a headache. They started when I was in my mid teens. Through the next 50 years I’ve learned to just ignore the familiar slight pain, but a couple of times a year they turn in to a full fledged migraine that I’ve learned out to knock it out within hours if I attack it right away. Now just thinking about them my head has started pounding… thanks! LOL. It always seems odd how some folks have never had a headache.

I can’t ever remember having a head ache. However both of my son-in-law’s get migraines all the time. Feel so sorry for them.
