9 Surprising Headache Triggers You Didn’t Know About!

MD - Pathology
General Physician, Amritsar
9 Surprising Headache Triggers You Didn’t Know About!
9 surprising headache triggers you didn’t know about

The reason behind your headache is not always common cold or loud music. Headaches can be triggered by a host of reasons, some of which can truly surprise you.

Check these 9 unexpected reasons that can make you reach for that aspirin.

1. Your weight
A recent study revealed that people with mild obesity, which means a body mass index (BMI) of 30, were 35% more likely to get headaches than those with a lower BMI. In fact, those who have a BMI of 40, and are quite overweight, had their chances increased up to 80%. Why exactly this happens is yet to be determined.

2. Your manager
Excessive work pressure can cause stress; and anything that causes your stress levels to rise can make you prone to tension headaches and migraines. Stress and headaches are interrelated. When you feel stressed out, the nerves in your brain that relay pain become much more sensitive. This, as a consequence causes that nagging headache.

3. Sex
In a survey conducted recently, 46% people said that sex was the prime reason behind their headaches. This kind of headache arises as a result of overexertion, and can even be caused while exercising. During sex, you may feel a dull headache that either increases during foreplay or orgasm due intense physical activity. This type of headache is common in men and is mostly harmless.

4. Cheese and wine
Aged cheese including varieties such as cheddar, Swiss, parmesan or blue cheese contains a substance called tyramine. This substance is a headache trigger for many people. The more aged the cheese, the higher the chances of getting a headache after eating it.
The same holds true for red wine. Tyramine, flavonoids and other substances that are present in red wine (and other alcoholic drinks) may contribute to your headaches. While the relation between the two is not very clear, the changes in the levels of serotonin (which is a chemical in the brain responsible for maintaining mood balance) may give rise to headaches after alcohol consumption.

5. Your daily cuppa coffee
Caffeine in moderation can actually cure your headaches, and is a part of several headache medications. But too much of caffeine can be the reason behind that painful headache. This happens when the medicinal effect of caffeine wears off, triggering a worse headache than before.
Apart from that caffeine withdrawal too can cause headaches. Since caffeine is responsible for narrowing the blood vessels, which surround your brain, when you stop consuming caffeine these blood vessels expand again, which causes pain.

6. Your hair band
How you style your hair can cause a headache. Tying your hair too tightly can strain the tissue in your scalp, which causes you to experience frequent headaches. Whether you braid your hair, make a ponytail, or wear a tight hat, all of them can trigger a headache. Usually, letting your hair down can sort out this problem.

7. Powerful aroma
A powerful smell, even if it’s pleasing, can be the reason behind headaches in many people. Though why this happens is not very clear yet, the reason may be that strong smells can cause disturbances in your nervous system, which as a result can lead to a headache. Smell of perfumes, paints and certain types of flowers are the most common headache triggers in this category.

8. The weather
Weather changes, like a heat wave or a cold snap for example, can increase the chances of headache in some people. Very sunny, hot days with high levels of humidity, rain, strong winds, and changes in the barometric pressure levels are other common causes of headaches. Such weather changes trigger electrical and chemical changes in the brain, which irritate the nerves and result in a headache.

9. Unhealthy posture
A poor posture can put unnecessary pressure on your head and neck muscles, which, as a consequence, can cause headaches. Usually, this kind of headache originates in the base of the skull, and its effect can be felt on the face, especially in the forehead area. Hunching your shoulders and cradling the phone between your ear and shoulders are some of the examples of poor posture that can lead to headaches.
Stay away from these things for a headache-free life.

Liposuction - Get Rid of Excess Body Fat

MBBS, M.Med.Sci Cosmetology, Ph.D Cosmetology(prel)
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Chennai
Liposuction - Get Rid of Excess Body Fat

Liposuction can be defined as a cosmetic procedure (shape altering technique) that helps you to get of excess rid of fat from the body. This procedure is opted for usually when all efforts of exercising and dieting have gone futile. 

What is Laser Liposuction? 
Laser liposuction is a method that is employed to shed off fat from various parts of the body such as face, buttocks, thighs, belly and hips through a very small (3 mm) surgical incision. A laser fiber of less than 1 mm is passed thro’ this incision to break up the fat. The laser liquefies the fat and it is then collected in a bottle outside. During the laser liposuction procedure, the skin gets tightened as well with the simultaneous elimination of the fat. This process negates any chance of loss of shape, loose skin or a protruding belly.

In what areas of the body can laser liposuction be used?

1. Arm Sculpting and Reduction: Women are more prone to putting on fat in the upper arm that also causes shoulder and neck pain. Even otherwise, a fatty underarm makes for an unflattering sight, especially because one cannot go sleeveless freely. This is where arm liposuction comes to the rescue.

2. Thighs: Fat deposits in the thighs interfere with the natural lines of the lower body and one may find it utterly embarrassing to plod with the inner thighs rubbing against each other. Ill-fitting pants and jeans further add to your irritation and discomfort.

3. Buttocks: Liposuction helps in removing excess accumulated fat from the waist line and buttocks and renders a good tone to your body, in keeping with your body frame.

4. Breast Liposuction: Breast liposuction contributes to a well-shaped contour by taking care of the fat that bulges out. Breast reduction and breast lift is ofeten done together.

5. Tummy Tuck: Abdominoplasty or ‘tummy tuck’ surgery helps to do away with the extra skin or fat from the lower abdominal area and works to tighten up the loose muscles especially after a pregnancy and excessive weight loss.

What are the Advantages of Laser Liposuction?

1. A quick solution to a long-term ‘fat’ problem.

2. A day procedure, which means that there is no hospitalization or downtime.

3. Assured results that are permanent and superior in nature compared to invasive surgical techniques.

4. Even PATIENTS WHO ARE UNFIT FOR GENERAL ANAESTHESIA can undergo laser liposuction (e.g., senior citizens).

5. Diabetic patients can also undergo laser liposuction as the procedure lowers blood sugar levels.

6. The final appearance is highly aesthetic considering that there are no uneven blobs of fat.

7. Zero trauma to tissues.

8. No blood transfusion is necessary.

9. Only a 3 mm incision is used and it is not even visible.

10. Skin tightens by itself simultaneously as the procedure is being carried out. Hence no sagging or loose skin and the belly button is not displaced, thereby giving an adverse appearance as with normal surgery.

11. No sutures, no ugly scars!

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hello, This could be due to teh position of teh child at the time of ultrasound and hence a repeat scan after a week can allay your anxiety. Unilateral development of nasal bone is not seen.

Hi dear, the reason for white discharge can be your vaginal or cervical infection. You have to first get thorough check up and treatment for the same before you conceive because ongoing infection if present, can go up in uterus and again lead to preterm labour. All the best.

you should not. Breast milk contains essential nutrients for the growing baby. You drinking it means less for the baby which will affect his/her growth.

Bleeding after I pill is normal. It is withdrawal bleeding. First of all first 7-8 days are safe after pregnancy. She did not need to take I pill .but use precautions now in the next cycle till she has next proper period.

Hi lybrate-user please wait for 2more days and get a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. If you can't wait then get a blood test called serum bhcg.
