Tension Headache – When Neck Pain Causes Headache

Neck pain transferred to your head is not a normal headache. This type of severe headache is called “tension headache.”

Know the Soul Cause of Tension Headache

The cause of this kind of headache lye in the neck. It is due to the muscles around your skull. At the very base of your head (skull) there are some muscles that may be the reason to your tension headache. These muscles are very important for the movement of your head, neck, and first and second vertebra. This headache originates from certain reasons, the soul reason being that when immense tension is exerted on those muscles, they start to ache. The cause of the tension although can be anything for example, staring or using electronic devices for too long or maybe wearing a new pair of glasses.

This kind of pain usually just starts from the neck, because the muscles are located there. The muscles start to get tense when any kind of pressure is exerted on them; the pain is nothing like a normal pain. It feels like someone has wrapped something around your neck. It’s normal when this muscle pain skips through the muscle in to your skull. Then it feels like the neck pain is scattered in your whole head.
