Address the stressor: Sometimes addressing the emotional stressors with a proactive approach will eliminate the ha problem, but your headache could be a migraine mechanism with evolution of chronic daily headaches. This pattern needs to be broken up, and many prescription and otc preps could help. A local neurologist should be found, so you can address all of this.

Agree w Dr. Machanic: Address specific stressors. In addition to valuable info already provided - work to manage your stress. o address stress: Talk about feelings & address problems. Don't avoid them. Aim for 7.5 - 8 hours of sleep/ night. Daily physical activity is optimal in a green space. Eat healthfully. Cut out junk carbs, caffeine & alcohol (or moderate). Try Qi Gong, Tai Chi, acupuncture, acupressure,>

? The problem: Part of the stress/tension headache may be a fast paced life style. You may not have control over the stress but you do have control over how you respond to it. There are medications that may help but it is better to find ways to idenify the triggers and deal with them. Look into the techniques of cognitive behavior therapy. Take control of your stress response and you will have less headaches.

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!
