    Tension-type headaches, also called muscle contraction headaches or simply tension headaches, are the most common of all headaches. Tension-type headaches tend to have the following characteristics: The pain is commonly described as a tight feeling, as if the head were in a vise. It usually occurs on both sides of the head and is often experienced in the forehead, in the back of the head and neck, or in both regions. Soreness in the shoulders or neck is common. The pain is of mild-to-moderate intensity and is steady, not throbbing or pulsating The headache is not accompanied by nausea or vomiting The pain is not worsened by routine physical activity (climbing stairs, walking) Some patients may have either sensitivity to light or sensitivity to noise, but not both Types of Tension Headache . Tension-type headaches are divided into four classifications: Frequent episodic tension-type headache. Headaches occur at least once but not more than 15 days per month for at least 3 months (a minimum of 12 days but not more than 180 days per year). Headaches last from at least 30 minutes to 7 days. Infrequent episodic tension-type headache. At least 10 episodes of headache that occur less than 1 day per month (12 days per year). Because these headaches occur infrequently, they do not impact a patient's quality of life as severely as frequent episodic headaches and may not require attention from a medical professional. Chronic tension-type headache. Headaches occur at least 15 days per month for at least 3 months (180 days per year). The headache persists for hours at a time and may be continuous. Probable tension-type headache. Probable tension headaches may be classified as probable frequent episodic, probable infrequent episodic, or probable chronic. They have most, but not all, of the symptoms of tension-type headaches and are not attributed to migraine without aura or other neurological disorders. Probable chronic tension-type headache may be related to medication overuse. Pl consult doctor immediatly.
