Tension headaches are most common kind of headaches.
Although stress and fatigue can make them worse, a
tension headache often starts with misaligned
This misalignment may irritate a spinal nerve,
setting in motion other physical problems like
tightening muscles and causing the steady, 'vicelike'
pain of a tension headache.
Unlike migraine headaches, tension headaches are
usually not unilateral or associated with light and

over in one position?
Do your neck and shoulder muscles feel stiff?
