Hi DeLillis. I'm sorry to hear of your muscle tension. Are you on any medication? Do you feel trigger points in the muscle tissues in your scalp/head/temples? I get those too! Are you suffering with allergies? Where I live in the NYC area, the air has been filled with headache inducing pollen and pollution lately.
I've had chronic myofascial syndrome (it's a pain, inflammation and muscle spasm syndrome that makes muscles tight, stiff and painful and barely anything can bring relief). It started from an injury and I've had it for 7 years. I've been to every specialist under the sun and I'm still living with neck and shoulder pain and inflammation all the time, so even though I know about tension, it's hard to give advice because everyone is different.
A few things that have helped - not cured, but helped me:
For headaches, I highly recommend Acupuncture. Acupuncture also helps tremendously with anxiety and stress and pain in the body. I was nervous about it but once I started going for treatments I was happier, more energetic, I lost weight, de-stressed somewhat and cleared up my sinuses and bloated belly! I personally love it. Also, if you can get a prescription of 800mg Motrin from your Doctor, that will help with any inflammation in the body - please drink TONS of water on this if you go for it. I find for that for headaches, 3 regular Bayer aspirin are the best. And of course, a massage is always helpful.
I hope this helps and I hope you feel better! Let us know!!
