« Back to Headaches & Migraines Questions

Q: I've been getting headaches for quite sometime now usually in the front of my head they last all day. At one point it as very sharp headaches but recently they feel like pressure like something is compressing. I feel a good bit of tension along my eyebrows and temples. What could be the cause of this?

A: There are many factors that could be causing your headaches. It could be eye strain, allergies, hormonal changes or any number of other reasons for the headaches.

Acupuncture is an excellent choice of treatment for headaches, but you may want to start a journal of the headaches to get a clearer picture of when and why they occur.

One way that headaches are diagnosed with Chinese medicine is by their location. Headaches located behind the eyes are often due to Liver-Blood deficiency if the pain is dull, or to Liver-Yang rising if the pain is sharp and severe.
