How do I avoid a headache while reading PDF books?

Most people experience headaches due to triggers related to their age, health and overall lifestyle. In the same way, students are no different. In fact, the young and seemingly healthy students often lead lifestyles that put them at a very high risk of headaches. Headaches have become a regular occurrence for students and many of them feel vulnerable when dealing with this problem. In this answer, I will try to address the issue in the most comprehensive manner possible. Nearly all headaches experienced by students are tension-type headaches that causes non-throbbing, frequently bilateral pain. The underlying cause is likely due to chemical and neuronal imbalances in the brain and may be related to muscle tightening at the back of the neck and/or scalp. Moreover, t are prone to the other common triggers of tension-type headaches, including temporary stress, fatigue and anxiety. From cramming for exams to early morning hangovers, from straining to read endless pages of small-print textbooks to staring at a computer screen for hours a time, students need to know how to avoid the headaches that can easily occur as a result of their lifestyle. Students can also suffer from dietary related headaches. A healthy diet with regular and well-balanced meals can often work wonders for a headache-prone person. Dietary headaches are a common affliction and are usually triggered by foods that assist with energy, such as caffeine and chocolate. Other foods that may trigger headaches include yellow cheese and other dairy products, red meat, nuts, foods high in monosodium glutamate (MSG) and alcohol. Dehydration is another common trigger and adequate intake of fluid throughout the day can prevent headaches. The human brain is more than 75% water, and it is very sensitive to the amount of water available to it. When the brain detects that the water supply is too low, it begins to produce histamines. This is essentially a process of water rationing and conservation, in order to safeguard the brain in case the water shortage continues for a long period of time. The histamines directly cause pain and fatigue, in other words, a headache and the low energy that usually accompanies it. Headaches can also occur due to bad posture. Studying in front of a computer for long hours can trigger headaches due to posture. It is preferable to use a good chair that supports the back and gives ideal posture. Many people try to get relief by taking some over-the-counter pills like saridon, crocin or disprin which should be avoided. Rather, one should try natural remedies to get rid of headaches. The following are some remedies that can help get rid of headaches naturally. Drink water. Drinking water has been shown to relieve headache symptoms in most dehydrated individuals within 30 minutes to three hours. Being dehydrated can impair concentration and cause irritability, making your symptoms seem even worse. To help avoid dehydration headaches, it is recommended to drink enough water throughout the day and eating water-rich foods. Take some magnesium. Magnesium is an important mineral necessary for countless functions in the body, including blood sugar control and nerve transmission and it has also been shown to be a safe, effective remedy for headaches. Evidence suggests that magnesium deficiency is more common in people who get frequent migraine headaches, compared to those who don’t . Studies have shown that treatment with 600 mg of oral magnesium citrate per day helped reduce both the frequency and severity of migraine headaches. However, taking magnesium supplements can cause digestive side effects like diarrhea in some people, so it’s best to consult a doctor who could suggest the required dosage. Get adequate sleep. Sleep deprivation can be detrimental to health in many ways, and may even cause headaches in some people. However, getting too much sleep has also been shown to trigger headaches. One should have around 7 hours of quality sleep per night for natural headache prevention. Avoid foods high in histamine. Histamine is a chemical found naturally in the body that plays a role in the immune, digestive and nervous systems. Studies suggest consuming histamine may cause migraines in those who are sensitive to it. Some people are not able to excrete histamine properly because t have impaired function of the enzymes responsible for breaking it down. Cutting histamine-rich foods from the diet may be a useful strategy for people who get frequent headaches. Use essential oils. Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids that contain aromatic compounds from a variety of plants. T have many therapeutic benefits and are most often used topically, though some can be ingested. Peppermint and lavender essential oils are especially helpful when you have a headache. Applying peppermint essential oil to the temples has been shown to reduce the symptoms of tension headaches, while lavender oil is highly effective at reducing migraine pain and associated symptoms when inhaled. Drink caffeinated drinks. Sipping on beverages that contain caffeine may provide relief from headache. Caffeine improves mood, increases alertness and constricts blood vessels, all of which can have a positive effect on headache symptoms. However, caffeine withdrawal has also been shown to cause headaches if a person regularly consumes large amounts of caffeine and suddenly stops. Relax with yoga. Practicing yoga is an excellent and effective way to relieve stress and improve the overall quality of life. Regularly practicing yoga may even help reduce the intensity and frequency of headaches. The National Headache Foundation (NHF) has prepared the following list of tips for students that may help avoid headaches. Studying for long periods of time can cause eyestrain. Take frequent breaks to give your eyes a rest. Invest in an ergonomic chair. Uncomfortable seating can cause neck and back pain that may lead to tension-type headaches. When it comes to alcohol, always drink in moderation, and with plenty of water in between drinks, to avoid hangover headaches in the morning. If hangovers do occur, treat with hydration and foods high in fructose (tomato juice, honey). If you are trying to stay awake to study, drink coffee only in moderation. Caffeine withdrawal can be a common source of headache for avid coffee drinkers. Though college students don’t always operate on a regular schedule, try not to vary your meal and sleep schedules too much. Irregular sleep cycles and missing or delaying meals can both trigger headaches. Practice relaxation and biofeedback techniques to help relieve the daily stress and anxiety of college life.
