Why Do I Get Headaches After Travel
Multiple Factors: Dehydration especially after alcoholic drinks, sleep deprivation, and "jet lag" all contribute to these headaches. Try to keep you activities as "normal" as possible to minimize these headaches. Allow time to adapt to the local time zone. Try to adjust to your return time zone prior to actually getting home.
HAs on Train: Some people are prone to motion-related has, others are sensitive to the fumes/vapors that accompany them. I assume you don't get these on a car or bus? How about on a bike or motorcycle? Assuming not, you might try preventative analgesic use - tylenol (acetaminophen) or nsaids - before the rides. What type of headache is it? Migraine? Cluster? If migraine, take a migraine formulation before you ride.See 1 more doctor answer

Headaches: There are numerous possibilities... But it's important to rule out serious issues such as aneurisms or other brain issues. See a neurologist right away for answers.
Many possibilities: There are many types of headaches and myriad causes for them to develop. Muscle tension and spasms, vascular spasms, food triggers, over use of headache medications and cervical spine joint disease are some of the possible causes. If you find them debilitating and interfering with your life, I suggest consulting a physician experienced in treating chronic headaches for a diagnosis and treatment.See 1 more doctor answer

Headband headaches: If you get headaches only when you wear headbands than stop wearing them, or don't wear them too tight in some cases headbands can be triggers for migraine headaches and if youhave history of headaches in past not related to headbands than it is the trigger and avoid it some people use headbands to prevent headaches, these are not too tight.
This or that: There could be multiple causes such as fatigue, eye strain, underlying reading difficulties that cause fatigue, concentration difficulties. First step for someone getting headaches while reading would probably be to start by going to an ophtalmologist to rule out visual problems.See 1 more doctor answer
Migraines?: Some pts who have migraine do find that aerobic exercise can either initiate or worsen headaches. However, neck problems, and even sinus infections can create head pain with exercise. If the headaches occur when your arms are elevated such as pull-ups or military weight lifting, you could consider thoracic outlet syndrome. If this is migraine, preventative measures will work.See 1 more doctor answer
