Any tips for tension headaches? I get such bad ones sometimes that even the back half of my tongue tenses up, which I can’t seem to do anything about, not to mention the headache and neck-ache and shoulder-ache…. I try doing relaxing things, massaging, avoiding screens and things I have to focus my eyes too much for, hot drinks…. Showers help, but it comes back within twenty minutes. So I don’t even bother with that most of the time because I usually don’t have the executive function for all of the things involved in before-/after-shower transitions. Ah, I should also mention that sometimes they’re from stress, sometimes it’s just from muscle pain in nearby areas, or if my neck wasn’t supported when I slept, etc.
