Tension Headaches Causes Tinnitus

Everyone had experience headache. It is a pain in the head which is a common complaint for many people. The fastest and the most convenient remedy for headache that probably you have in your medicine cabinet are pain relievers such as aspirin, paracetamol, or ibuprofen to ease the pain but sometimes the cause of the headache may demand more suitable treatment.

One specific form of headache is migraine that could last for 4 to 72 hours which sometimes associated with nausea and vomiting and high sensitivity to bright lights and noise. The cause of migraine is yet unknown, though the common perception is that it is a disorder in the serotonergenic control system or dysfunction in calcium and potassium ion transfer between cell membranes.

Another form is the tension headache. It is believed that they are caused by muscle tension around the head and the neck. There are also presumptions that the pain is caused by malfunction in the pain filters situated in the brain cells and other abnormalities in the central nervous system. All the possible causes specified are only assumption and the exact cause is still indefinite.

Tension-type headache can also be the result of stress, anxiety, anger, fatigue, emotion and medication. Some of these known causes (such as stress and anxiety) can be associated directly with the major causes of ringing of the ears. This is clear evidence showing that tension headache causes tinnitus.

By avoiding these known causes, tension headache and tinnitus can be averted. Stressful activities and other known stressors must be avoided to stop the headache episodes as well as the ringing in the ear. You should also take note of certain foods that may cause the problem.

Although there is no cure tinnitus from stress, there are natural stress treatments that are proven effective in managing your everyday stress.
