I’ve been getting tension headaches recently and my doctor says it’s because of my stiff neck and shoulders. She says I seem pretty healthy so it could be caused by using the wrong pillow or sleeping in the wrong sleeping position. Do you have any advice on how I can get rid of this?
Thanks!

It could be stress. I clench my jaw so much when I’m stressed or worried about life that I get headaches, earaches and eventually toothaches! Try to find things that help your muscles relax, because a lot of the time it’s a vicious cycle. You tense up and then the pain makes you tense up more. Massage your shoulders and neck, chew gum to get your temporal muscles to focus on something else other than being tense, and take deep breaths!
