With headaches of any type it is recommended to keep a special diary. This will determine the most common causes of headache. In the diary you need to enter information about meals, sleep, physical activity, work and household chores. Women should also record data on menstruation, because changes in the hormonal background can also affect the headache. To prevent a headache, avoid any triggers that you have been able to identify with a diary. Try to follow the regime. Eat at about the same time, 3-6 times a day, in small portions. Get enough sleep, go to bed and get up at the same time, exercise regularly, or go in for sports. If possible, avoid stress. Headaches are often the result of fatigue, tension, emotional disorders. If you smoke, it is recommended that you quit this habit as soon as possible. Smoking can provoke or intensify them.
