Your Headaches Are Trying To Tell You Something About Your Health

Your Headaches Are Trying To Tell You Something About Your Health

Everyone gets a headache at some point, but sometimes they are too strong to put off. While not every single person suffers from strong headaches (lucky!), there are those that do. Having a headache usually isn't something that's fun, so we usually pop an Advil and just wait for it to pass. What becomes important is distinguishing different types of headaches and knowing when to pay attention to them. Certain headaches can indicate something is wrong with your health.

SHARE this with anyone you know that seems to always have a headache.

Tension Headaches

Tension headaches are generally nothing to worry about. In fact, they're the most common type. For the most part, (if it's not causing serious pain) you can take some kind of painkiller and just continue with your day.


Migraines are generally moderate to severe in pain and can last for relatively long periods of time (four hours to three days). For most people, they won't frequently occur, though the exact reason as to why they do isn't very well known (genetics and environmental factors play a role).

Cluster Headaches

Cluster headaches are considered to be the most severe and least common of the headache types. Their pain is so intense that sufferers are usually unable to sit still. The pain generally occurs behind or in the eye and feels like it has a burning or piercing quality that is constantly throbbing.

Sinus Headaches

Sinus headaches are the result of an inflamed sinus (likely because you're sick or have allergies). The pain regions include the bridge of the nose, the forehead, and cheekbones. 

Hormone Headaches

These headaches are often specific to women as they occur during periods of hormonal change (menstruation, menopause, and pregnancy). Birth control pills can also cause these headaches.

So, when should you start worrying?

Well, there are multiple signs that you should seek medical attention. It's often not best to leave things to chance.

It awakens you from your sleep

If your headaches are waking you up, then you should see a doctor. This is a pretty unusual symptom, so it's worth getting checked out.

The pain is strongest at its onset

This is sometimes referred to as a "thunderclap." If the pain is the most severe right off the bat, then there's probably something wrong. 

It's accompanied by other problems

If your headache is causing additional problems, such as a loss of vision, numbness, or anything unusual, then it's a hint that something is off.

You have a headache, but it's different

If your headache isn't like your usual headaches, then that's another reason to be worried. Remember, you can never be overly cautious when it comes to your health.

A Flamin' Hot Cheetos Turkey Has Arrived And Thanksgiving Is Ruined

A Flamin' Hot Cheetos Turkey Has Arrived And Thanksgiving Is Ruined

Can we just stop with the Flamin' Hot Cheetos thing? It was funny at first, when they appeared on pizza and bagels, but messing with my Thanksgiving turkey is just crossing a line. 

It's a completely arbitrary line I just made up right this moment, but it's a line, okay?!

But really, what is this day-glo monstrosity? 

That is not a color any beautifully tasty bird should be. 

If you think this might be something you may actually like to try, the people over at Reynolds Kitchen have the recipe.

I mean, I get the idea of a crispy crust, but I'd rather have the turkey skin be nice and crisp and those Cheetos are making that impossible. 

But you know, you do you.

Whether your family likes a brined turkey cooked with garlic and rosemary, a Cheetos-coated feast, or the adventure of dropping a 20lb bird into a pot of boiling oil, the point is to spend time with family this holiday season.

And if you like this idea, but maybe not the "flamin' hot" part, feel free to raid the snack aisle for alternative crusts.

Reynolds Kitchen already has two other versions: one using ranch tortilla chips and another using crunchy onion-flavored rings. 

I may actually be able to get behind that last one...

So I still think Flamin' Hot Cheetos–crusted turkey is an absolutely insane idea, but tell me what you think in the COMMENTS and SHARE this with all your friends!

10 Of The Highest Paying Jobs In The World

Jobs are hard enough to come by. You dream, you study, you work your tail off getting a foot in the door, and more often than not, you have to take a second job or work your way up the ladder to reach your ambitions. Shouldn't your pay reflect all the sweat you've put in and all the value you bring? Isn't this America? Shouldn't we reward effort and merit?

Unfortunately, the paycheck at the end of the week doesn't always seem to add up to what you think it should. And funny enough, if you were doing the same job in a different country, you'd be making more money! 

The numbers don't lie. Have a look for yourself!

14 Boyfriends Who Are Definitely Going To Be Single

14 Boyfriends Who Are Definitely Going To Be Single

There is an infinite number of ways in which a man can make his wonderful, sweet girlfriend angry in this life. I once got in trouble because I didn't look up the price of tickets to an event my girlfriend and I had already deemed too expensive to attend. The problem wasn't that I was being cheap or anything, because we'd already agreed on it. The problem was that I didn't "care" enough to look up the tickets myself after she had already exhausted every attempt to find cheaper ones.


I know, right? However, there is obviously a different degree of severity for each little act. Some will be resolved rather quickly, others will see you on the couch for a week or so. Push your luck and you just might be looking at a complete nookie lockdown, and nothing is worse than a dry spell while in a relationship!

1. First of all, as a man, this one is understandable!

2. This man knows what his priorities are!

3. Thin ice, bub. Thin ice!

4. When protein is already bae!

5. *Hurries to the store to by Hot Cheetos to make sure there's some in the house*

6. If there's one thing I know, it's that this is going to end poorly!

7. This is too good an image not to use, no matter the consequences!

8. The petty is strong with this one!

9. One week a month, this could get you killed, my dude!

10. Almost made it!

11. No matter how you cut it, it's not going to help!

12. That was one word away from being sweet!

13. What's that they say about free milk and buying the cow and what not?

14. Pro: her body gets better. Con: you don't get to touch it!

15. All your presents are being returned, dude!

16. You ain't goin' anywhere!

17. At least he didn't go with "pussy!"

23 Terrifying Facts About 'The Blair Witch Project'

23 Terrifying Facts About 'The Blair Witch Project'

I still remember the night that I saw The Blair Witch Project. I convinced my friends that it was a good idea to watch the movie at a sleepover. Spoiler alert: I made a poor decision and it was in fact not a good idea. I was so scarred from that movie for, like, a year. I was so sure that the whole thing was real and that the Blair Witch would come after me too! And to be honest, I don't think I'm totally over being scared about the movie. 

What's really scary is that knowing the behind-the-scenes facts about the movie makes it even creepier. A LOT happened during filming, and now I have goosebumps just thinking about it. 

Here's everything you need to know about the horror movie that scared the whole world. 

1. Heather Donahue's mom received hundreds of sympathy cards from people who believed that her daughter was actually dead or missing! 

2. The three leads believed that the Blair Witch was a real legend while they were filming, but they knew the film was going to be fake.

Only after the movie was released did they find out that the entire mythology was made up by the film's creators.

3. The directors kept in touch with Heather, Michael C. Williams, and Joshua Leonard with walkie-talkies to make sure they didn't get lost while roaming around in the forest. Apparently, they still got lost at least three times! 

4. One of the video cameras used by the actors was bought at Circuit City. After filming finished, the producers went back and returned the camera for a full refund!

That made their budget money go even further.

5. The actors were actually tortured on set because they were forced to eat less and less by the producers. The producers wanted tension and drama between the actors, so they made sure the stars were hungry. 

6. The reactions from Heather, Mike, and Josh from when they discover they walked all day and ended up in the same spot are real. They were genuinely upset that they walked all day for nothing!

7. The actors had a code word for when they wanted to speak out of character. If they wanted a break, they would say "taco."

8. Remember the scene where they're sleeping in a tent and the tent suddenly shakes and they're all scared? Their reactions were genuine because it was unscripted.

It was the director who shook the tent! 

9. The directors told the actors to go interview the townspeople. Except they had no idea that the townspeople were planted by the directors, so the expressions on the actors' faces were completely unrehearsed!

10. Heather said that the final scene was so terrifying that she kept hyperventilating and crying long after the scene was filmed.

I get scared just thinking about that scene. I can't imagine what it was like for her to really be there filming it!

11. The teeth found by Heather near the end that are supposed to be Josh's teeth were real. The director got them from his dentist! 

And the hair? It was real too. It came from Josh!

12. The actors played dead IRL! To promote the movie, the actors were listed as "missing, presumed dead" on IMDb.

13. It only took eight days to shoot the whole movie. They shot 19 hours of footage, but it was all edited down to 90 minutes. 

14. Heather, Josh, and Michael were all paid $1,000 a day. Apparently, Michael said that he ended up making about $300,000 since the movie was released. 

15. The sounds of children heard at night were taken from kids playing around the house of the director's mom. The tape was then played over speakers in the forest. Apparently, Michael said that this was the scariest scene to shoot. 

16. Fans of the film were so convinced that the Blair Witch was real that they traveled to Maryland to discover the legend.

17. Before filming, the actors were given a 35-page outline of the mythology behind the plot. 

But all of their lines were completely improvised! They had almost no knowledge of the events that would happen in the film, resulting in their shocked reactions being completely genuine. 

18. The movie made it into The Guinness Book of World Records for "Top Budget: Box Office Ratio."

Even though the film only cost $60,000 to make, it made $248 million with a ratio of $1 spent for every $10,931 made. 

19. The Burkittsville sign that appears at the beginning of the movie has been stolen three times, including on the film's opening night. 

20. The filmmakers may have taken things a little too far with their marketing campaign.  

During the Cannes Film Festival, the filmmakers attempted to draw interest to their movie by putting up "missing" posters around the Croisette. However, a real kidnapping had just recently happened, and the filmmakers were instructed to remove the posters. 

21. Heather, Mike, and Josh were given strict instructions to follow the trails and directions that the movie crew gave them. 

This was to ensure that they would reach their designated campsites each night. 

22. From 1999 to 2000, the hoards of fans visiting the movie's Maryland locations scared away all of the hunting game. 

So although local hunters were very frustrated, at least the animals got a bit of a break! 

23. Josh was given a brief course on using his camera before shooting, but he struggled with focusing it during the first few days. 

That's why the interview with Mary Brown is so fuzzy and grainy!
