We all get headaches. Often it’s from stress or lack of sleep, but sometimes the cause of our headaches might be coming from sources you didn’t realize. For instance, I love cheese so much, but did you know cheese can actually be the source of your headache? How about wine? Your phone? Even your pillow or hat or caffeine withdrawal from not drinking coffee! Today I discuss 10 surprising causes of headaches you probably didn’t know about. Is there anything you’ve found that gives you a headache that I didn’t put on this list? Let me know down below!
I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

Every time there’s a strong scent I get a headache, I can smell thing in a large distance! Sometimes is good but sometimes is really annoying 😂 And every time I have a ponytail I get a headache, but it’s not only with a strong ponytail, a light ponytail too. I really like to use a ponytail when it’s hot, but I can’t use too long because I get a headache!

My orthopedist came to speak at my office (health workers) on this once. Had nothing to do with me, slightly awkward. But he pointed out that since you are basically holding the same position for hours, you want to sleep in the position you would hold if you were standing up for hours. It was actually good advice.

Ok migraine and headache sufferers, I dont know who this will help, but here ya go.... Drink a big glass of water and go sit on the toilet. I dont know why exactly this works, but having a bowl movement seems to get rid of it on occasion. Maybe it has something to do with the nervous system. Maybe it's eliminating the food we are sensitive to. Either way it works. Just like when it goes away after throwing up. I know everyone has different triggers, but when I noticed a correlation, I mentioned it to a friend and now she swears pooping gets rid of her headaches sometimes too. In the same realm, my mom swears having an acidic stomach and not enough salt can cause headache.

Doctor Mike! You forgot about periods! I suffer from a 2-3 day migraine every month (and from my tracking it, I believe it's due to my period). It's gotten a little better since I started taking iron pills, but they still rudely interrupt my daily life and workout routine. It sucks. 🤢

I had to deal with migraines for the better part of a decade. Was put on several meds for it before my current doctor decided to check my blood pressure and, lo and behold, high blood pressure. Put me on meds for that and now I only get a migraine every now and then, usually due to weather extremes.

What kind of cheese doesn’t contain tyramine?
TinkyTheCat Acum 21 oră
Huh. I've always been very moderate with wine because I'm more prone to getting headaches after drinking it than other alcohols. I'd always thought I just couldn't metabolize grape alcohol well and was experiencing hangovers, but perhaps it's actually the tyramine - I do typically consume wine and cheese together.

The eye doctor enlightened me that my headaches could be from my ptosis because it caused me to raise my eyebrows unconsciously to try to raise my eyelids to see. As soon as he said it I could feel the tension and relax my forehead on purpose. No more headache.
LunaBianca1805 Acum 22 ore
I'm totally sure when I got headaches it's usually because of me clenching my teeth and that stupid tray doesn't help, because I might not have headaches after using it, but my teeth do hurt from biting down so hard ^^' The mattress is a matter of itself for me because I definitely get backaches if I sleep too long and a softer one didn't help, either :/ Oooh, caffeine, charged as guilty here. I usually pride myself in not doing any drugs, no alcohol, no cigs, but I actually do drink coffee and tea ^^'. If the headaches were supposed to be a weather change warning (I do get those, too.), then my asthma totally is, as well. I usually get trouble breathing when weather gets too humid and warm, so I get almost definitely tell you when a thunderstorm is brewing ;)

Dr. Mike, can you talk about the difference between migraines and headaches? I am a chronic migraine sufferer and I think people often just think of them as "bad headaches" when they affect the whole body and can be really debilitating.

Yeah... about 4 of those causes are happening to me periodically, but you forgot about the PMS migraine, the sinus infection, the ear infection, tooth infection, allergy triggered migraines ( sometimes it's not just the strong scents), light sensitivity migraines, noise sensitivity migraines...indigestion can cause them too... sh*t I got a whole new list... but yeah, those things happened to me, especially the weather one, and all I like to do is chew some gum (it alleviates the tension in the jaw), or drink some chamomile tea, cover my head with a light fluffy blanket and make it quiet or play some smooth music until I ideally fall asleep, or if it's a head cold, I give myself the hair treatment with the oil mixture, massage lightly, put a plastic cap and a beanie on, to keep it incubated and cozy and then just relax and let the oils do their thing ( if there's peppermint, eucalyptus, rosemary and say.... maybe a bit of BHA extract of salicylic acid in that concoction, they work just fine in decongesting and alleviating migraines... besides the benefits to the scalp).

Start watching this cause of having migraines 19 and have had migraines since I was 8ish. So far known causes for me, sleep (too much), food (specifically beans, soy, peanuts) dehydration, scents, light, heat, stress, masks (new one 🙄😡) and having over 3-4 a week, the compression, and the glasses (much better with contacts I feel). So far haven’t figured it out yet

I never had migraines until I got my first smartphone - it had 4G LTE - within days I started having 1 to 3 migraines a week - sure, eyestrain can be a trigger, but that's not the danger of cell phones - it's the radiation! After 3 months of tests and being diagnosed with complex migraine a friend suggested turning off my cell phone. No more migraines! The effect was immediate.
