A Tension type Headache is the most common headache, accounts for 90% of all headaches and is responsible for over 50% of patient's that attend a GP with headache related pain. Tension type headache is the medical term used to describe those normal back ground headaches that we experience from day to day.

Symptoms include a tight band that feels like a constant dull ache, felt equally on both sides of the head. The dull ache normally starts at the base of the skull or in the forehead and then begins to gradually radiate round into the tight band. In a lot of cases discomfort, stiffness and muscles spasms are experienced in the neck and upper shoulders.
