Hi babco1969,

There are a number of things that can cause headaches and/or migraines. Some of the more common causes of tension headaches and chronic tension headaches are stress, depression, hunger and muscle strain. Some other surprising headache triggers include the weather, strong scents, hair accessories and poor posture. You might want to make an appointment to talk with your doctor about your long-term headache to see if you can get to the root cause and find some relief.

Best wishes,
