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!

2:47 - What about belly sleepers? I usually try to fall asleep on my side because I can't fall asleep on my back, but often wind up in what I call the "Cactuar Position" instead by the time I actually fall asleep, which is a form of sleeping belly-down. (A cactuar is a creature from the Final Fantasy series that has a lot of right angles in its positions. Look up an image of one and you'll know the position I often fall asleep in.)

I hope this gets to at least someone who gets migraines, relatively recent research has directly linked your eyes to migraines, most eye clinics now have the machine to test and see if you’re one of these people, they make special lenses for this condition and although expensive, they are very effective or your money back, they worked for me, I used to get 3-5 migraines a week and now get about 1-2 a year, ask your eye doctor about these lenses and see if they’re right for you

About the cheese before bedtime: I read somewhere that a study funded by the British Cheese Board (seriously, it exists) showed that eating cheese before bedtime caused vivid dreams. The test subjects were given about 20g of cheese before sleeping. So of course, I just *had* to try this.... Happy to say, cheese doesn't give me headaches. I too love cheese.

Cause#10 should be higher on your list. The reason I believe it happens is due to it being synthetically made. Compared to essential oils which are pure from the source, synthetic ones just “stink”! I wish more ppl would realize this. My sense of smell is super sensitive and it’s the first thing that can automatically cause head pain, like a sharp pain upon smelling it. In addition to your excellent way of explaining what happens in the brain during strong scents, I have fibromyalgia which is already an over active nervous system. Double whammy for me I guess. LOL Thank you for a great video Dr. Mike.

For me, the strong scents is sort of a sensory overload thing. If I'm in a dark or quiet room, smells dont bother me. It's even worse when eating because then I'm tasting something too. It's like my nervous system just cant handle it.

My migraines normally have a very clear cause, too much sun, too much sweet stuff day before, too much stress or a change in routine, so changing how much I sleep. I also tend to get them the day before a period

What about epilepsy related migraines? I've heard some neurologists mention them and it feels as if they cannot pinpoint the epicenter of the migraine so they just use the preexisting epilepsy diagnosis to explain it.

I felt bad for going to the ER (twice) for headaches. The first time, they did a CT scan (I have clotting history), and said they found nothing. The next time, they reinterpreted the CT scan and did an MRI to discover I have a spontaneous CSF leak. Like, I’m in my 30s. We don’t go to the hospital for no reason. A little annoyed doctors don’t take people my age seriously.

I already ground my way through my acrylic night guard. Insurance won’t pay for another one. I have flat teeth in the back now. I would go through the rubbery ones in one night. I have horrible broken, chipped, and flat teeth. I also have a bit of an overbite so my bottom teeth constantly knock against my top front teeth. Very, very unhappy. I think my dentist wants to shoot me. I shredded through 2 acrylic guards. I think I’m just going to have to get duals.

Things for Gamers who get headaches. Try getting a lighter headset or take it off in between matches. If you where a hat just don’t tighten it till your trying to make your head shrink. Get a bigger hat if you cant. Just some ideas that might help. Edit: Astro A20 is a light headset, and its actually good quality lasts you 15 Hours. If play longer than that maybe your getting a headache cause u stare at your screen too long. Plus the A20 is cheap for a wireless headset $120.

As someone treated for chronic migraines for nearly a decade most of this was a review. But I never thought about the hat correlation. It makes sense though. The brim of the hat sits right where the neurologist presses during my exams. Also, my favorite migraine tracking app is N-1 Headache (formerly Curelator). It’s helped me figure out my triggers, warning signs, and even protective stuff. By using this app, I now know excessive yawning is a big red-alert for me. I also know that for whatever reason nuts may help prevent or reduce the intensity of my migraines. So much info gleaned from using such a simple tracking app!

I never had a migraine before in my life, but then I think I got coronavirus because I had so bad of a headache that I couldn't look at computer screens or get out of bed without feeling my brain explode worse than any hangover. Had a real bad fever too, and vomited/dry heaved every 20 or so minutes for about 15 hours once the headache went away. Caffeine and alcohol withdrawal is nothing compared to that migraine.

I can't even walk by the candle store at the mall. I have to purposely go to the other side and pass it on the far side. If I walk by in front of it, major migraine. Also the coffee and lack of sleep have a tendency to do me in. I'm a medical technician. And 3 of my weekly shifts are overnights. You know how that goes. Sometimes it's totally uneventful, and I end up sleeping most of the shift. Some nights I don't get any sleep at all. And others I get an hour here or there, but keep getting woken up to respond to emergencies. And with coffee, I've gotten to the point that the caffeine does nothing to keep me energized, I just drink it to avoid the soul crushing headache. I've been actively working on cutting back my caffeine intake. I don't want to just go cold turkey and suffer though. So I've been keeping track of how much I'm drinking, and cutting it back a few oz a week or so. Right now I'm still drinking about 32 - 36 oz a day though.
