Tension headaches are the most common type of headache, and are caused by tight muscles in your shoulders, neck, scalp and jaw. Tension headaches are often related to stress, depression or anxiety. You are more likely to get tension headaches if you work too much, don’t get enough sleep, miss meals or use alcohol. To learn more about these types of headaches, please visit the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke website.
