Get Rid Of Tension Headaches With Wheatbags

February 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 267

It has been reported by the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project that in the year 2008 2.4% of all emergency room visits in the United States were due to headaches. This accounts for over 3 million visits per year just for headaches alone with women accounting for three out of every four patients. Migraines were diagnosed in about 63% of the cases and if hospitalization was required, the average length of stay was 2.7 days. The total cost for headache hospitalizations and hospital based treatments was $408 million dollars in 2008.

These are staggering figures by any means but they certainly don't account for all the headaches that occur. Most people have headaches and they can be a symptom many different health conditions from colds and the flu through to much more serious issues and concerns. Chronic types of headaches can be a symptom of high blood pressure among other potentially life-threatening health conditions.

People that have headaches on a regular basis need to talk to their doctor. Most headaches that are acute and occasional can be linked to tension, stress and anxiety. However headaches can also be a result of eye strain and eye fatigue. Getting your eye's checked if your headaches are related to reading, using the computer or watching TV is a good option. People with current vision prescriptions should have their prescription checked as well.

If you know that the headaches you are experiencing are from tension wheatbags can be a true lifesaver. Tension headache symptoms include:

· Pain through the head, including down the back of the neck

· Feelings of exhaustion

· Difficulty concentrating

· Sensitivity to light and noise that can be mild to severe

· Occurs periodically, not chronically

· Aching muscles

· Difficulty sleeping

These symptoms may occur very suddenly but for most people they start slowly and build over time. Using wheatbags at the first sign of tension headache symptoms can help completely alleviate the headache or, at the very least, diminish the symptoms and duration of the headache.

Longer rectangular wheatbags are a great option for treating tension headaches. They are perfect as a heat source applied to the back of the neck and the top of the shoulders. This will loosen those tight muscles, increase blood flow and help to reduce the muscle tension that can trigger the headache.

At the same time you are applying heat to the neck and shoulders you can also use the same type of wheatbags as a cold pad for the eyes, forehead and the temple area. This will provide immediate soothing to the burning experience felt in the eyes and the pain associated with tension headaches.
