Tension Headaches: Tension headaches usually are 2-sided, constant, headache pain that radiate into the neck and shoulders. There is no associated nausea, vomiting, vision change, nor incapacity; like with migraine. Typical treatment would be otc analgesics. Look for triggers, like stress, and avoid if possible.
