Do I stop wearing glasses when I have headache?

Maybe: If you feel your glasses are associated with causing the headaches then yes, remove them and get your refraction checked. If you already have a headache and your glasses are appropriate the it shouldn't make much difference whether you wear them or not. Sometimes though, heavy frames can exacerbate a headache.

Several possibilitie: First identifying triggers in the diet or lifestyle are important as that may abort them altogether. I also suggest chinese medicine and acupuncture as I have seen headaches disappear during treatment. There are also medications that can help a great deal when one starts.. So having several options is very helpful!
