Suffering from severe recurring headache. Is it because of mental strain ?

Hello Doctor , my 17 year old daughter, who is doing her pre-university course (+2) frequently complaints of sevre head-ache. We consulted an ENT Specialist and also an eye specialist, who told us that the head ache is not because of any vision problem or any sinus-related problem, but because of mental strain. But the head-ache occurs not only when she is under pressure or tension (during exam times), but during normal times as well. What should we do? Please help.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Is she having one sided or full forehead headache. Any pain at the back of the head and neck. Any feeling of vomiting. Is she taking any medicines. Does she seem depressed. Less or more sleep. Weight gain or loss. She needs to reduce stress in her life. She probably has Tension headache. She needs to take frequent breaks while studying, walk around a little. Avoid junk food, fatty food. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. She needs to drink plenty of water which helps relax and reduce stress as well. Brisk walking everyday for 40 minutes helps to bring good circulation to scalp muscles and prevents frequent headaches. She needs to do Yoga, Pranayam for stress relief. She required 6-8 hours of sleep daily. She can taker Paracetamol tablet for relief from headache but above mentioned instructions will help prevent headache. Also if no improvement Neurologist consult will do best.
