The worldwide numbers of people suffering from recurring headaches are truly staggering. According to official data, over 1 billion people suffer from headaches. Hence, about 15% of the world population. From this point of view, we Italians are also on average, given that about 6 million constantly suffer from it. One of the most serious problems right now is the fact that migraines are increasingly affecting children and young people as well. As we can see in the international study that we enclose. In the latter case, we are talking about data that are quite worrying, but so recent that we cannot yet have complete explanations. As for adults, neither indigestion nor stress but here are 2 unthinkable causes for sudden headaches.
World Headache Day
Headache or cephalalgia, to use a medical term, is so common all over the world that it has even dedicated a day: on May 19th of each year. According to the WHO, even persistent and constant headaches are one of the main causes of social disability. As we can see in this interesting study by the Umberto Veronesi Foundation. Here even the numbers of Italians who claim to suffer from headaches “from time to time” explode, reaching over 25 million. In practice, one in two Italians risks, by his own admission, taking the classic aspirin to soothe the pains and discomfort of headaches.
Neither indigestion nor stress but here are 2 unthinkable causes for sudden headaches
As doctors and researchers continually point out, the stress of recent years is leading millions of people to learn about the problem of headaches. Unfortunately, a massive contribution has been made in this sense since the arrival of the pandemic. And since we are also exposed to other daily risk factors such as pollution, we must try to control our nervous system as much as possible. Another attack on our health and in a sense related to stress comes from eating habits. We know that when we are particularly anxious, we do not eat salads and carrots, but we almost always seek refuge in “crap”. As reported by medical studies, including the attached one, a healthy diet is also essential for the prevention of headaches. But there could also be 2 surprises in the birth of our migraine.
Mold and colors of monitors
They may seem the polar opposite, yet the mold and colors of monitors could cause us sudden and underestimated headaches. The mold spore, if present especially in the bedroom, could cause breathing difficulties and oxygenation of the brain. Not only plants and anti-mold to combat humidity in the house but also these 3 tips in this regard.
Similarly, but with different characteristics, we could risk a headache if we are in front of the monitors especially in the evening. A bad habit is to take your iPad or smartphone to bed at the end of the day. The intense colors of the monitor create the sensation of daylight in the brain. Therefore, our minds lack the perception that we are going to rest instead. Seeing the lights and perhaps hearing loud sounds, our brain is called to activity, instead of getting ready to rest. This could cause us headaches from eyestrain and mental fatigue. In fact, let’s not forget that the famous 8 hours of rest per night are valid for the refreshment of the body, but also and above all of the brain. And, speaking of computers, we invite you to read the in-depth study to save on sudden and expensive maintenance.
