    At Least Once a Week...

    I'm not sure what the average is but I would have to say I get tension headaches at least once a week.  One of my faults is overbooking or overcommitting myself and I feel like there aren't enough hours in a day.  Whenever, I am trying to take on too much, I get that...

    I get tension headaches at least once a week. I seem to carry all my stress in my neck/shoulders and I think that's where the headaches come from. I also slouch a lot, so that doesn't help. The headaches are awful and almost nothing helps. I've been given some of the strongest...
