I believe I have a tension head ache IV had it for 2 days. It comes and goes as stress increases and decreases. How can I get rid off it?
I had headaches for 2 months and everytime I see the gp I get told it's stress just take paracetamol. In the past few weeks I now get tingly sensation in head/face also feeling like I'm going to faint?
