Tension-type headaches are the most common type of headache, accounting for about half of all headaches. The pain is usually mild-to-moderate in intensity, with a steady pressing or tightening quality (like a vise being squeezed around the head).

The headache is not accompanied by nausea or vomiting, and the pain is not increased by routine physical activity such as walking or climbing stairs. A tension-type headache attack can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an entire week.

Who Gets Tension-Type Headaches?

Women are more likely to get tension-type headaches than men. Nearly everyone will have at least one tension-type headache at some point in their lives. Many people who have migraine headaches also have tension-type headaches.

What Is The Difference Between Tension Headaches & Migraine Headaches?

Migraines and tension headaches have some similar characteristics, but also some important differences:

  • Migraine pain is usually throbbing and while tension-type headache pain is usually a steady ache
  • Migraine pain often affects only one side of the head while tension-type headache pain typically affects both sides of the head
  • Migraine headaches, but not tension-type headaches, may be accompanied by nausea or vomiting, sensitivity to both light and sound, or aura
