Headache Knowledge

The average person gets a headache one to three times a month. Almost every person that gets a headache will usually take Ibuprofen or Tylenol to treat the pain fast. I spoke With Dr. Habetz On Wednesday, August 26, and we covered symptoms and reasons people get headaches. Dr. Habetz told me from several tests he had ran himself that Tylenol and Ibuprofen are one of the primary reasons people get recurring headaches. You're all asking how that's possible, right? Well, I didn't believe him either until he explained to me how Ibuprofen and Tylenol block pain receptors in your brain. Of course that sounds great, but actually it's very unhealthy to block pain with the two medicines. After using the medicines for a recurring long period of time, those pain receptors grow to need the block of pain, and you become more prone to having headaches.  Headaches are no joy (trust me), and building the pain tolerance pays off in the long run.
