Hey, there! Welcome to Lifenoggin!
Everything is different.
we’ve all had them.
Mine usually takes the form of this guy.
Come on! Stop it already.
Now, headaches can be a true pain in the noggin.
But what if you had one that
seem to never go away?
How bad would it be?
Before we jump in today’s video,
I want to take a moment to thank LastPass,

Before we talk about a never-ending headache,
we should probably talk a bit more about
what goes on
during your average run-of-the-mill headache.

Animator, could you get me an ice pack, please?
I guess technically
that is ice. Thanks, animator.
With tension headaches
which are the most common types of headaches,
you often have pain that
can feel like a band of pressure
in your head skull or neck.
You might also have some tight muscles in those areas.
A bunch of different things
can trigger a tension headache,
from sleeping in a weird position
to having more or less caffeine than normal,
to even holding your head in the same position
as you aimlessly type at that book report
you forgot to do until the last minute.
not naming any names.
Now, these headaches can certainly ruin your day.
But they usually only last up to a few hours.
Binge like 27 lifenoggin episodes
and you are good.
But what if they were even worse?
What if they’ve lasted way longer?
In that case, you might be having a migraine.
Simply put, you can think of a migraine as
a more severe and longer lasting headache.
Though they often have other symptoms, too,
the pain will often manifest itself
as intense throbbing or posing sensation
on one or both sides of your head.
It’s fairly common for a bad migraine
to also be accompanied by things like nausea,
vomiting and an extreme sensitivity to light.
A migraine will usually last about a day.
Though they could realistically last anywhere from a few hours
to a couple of days. Yep, ouch.
What’s so terrible about them
is that the pain can be disabling.
People sometimes have to basically put their lives on hold,
just be able to cope with the pain.
Now, migraines themselves can be really bad.
But they might also be associated with
other problems and health conditions.
According to a 2009 study,
migraine has been linked to several psychiatric disorders,
比如 焦虑 抑郁
such as anxiety and depression,
as well as stress-related disorders, like PTSD.
The researchers also reported on a known ridged general population study of
all over 43,000 people
that not only supported the relationship between migraines and anxiety
but also identify the correlation with
anxiety and headache frequency.
They found the twofold increase risk
of generalized anxiety disorder or GAD
in people whose migraines occurred
less than 7 days per month,
a sixfold increase risk for GAD in people with
7 to14 days of migraines per month.
and a sevenfold increase risk
for GAD for people who had migraines
happening more than 14 day a month.
If you have a headache that never went away,
I bet you fall into the sevenfold category.
There are also things called Cluster Headaches,
which are a series of relatively short and sudden,
but extremely painful headaches
that can go on for weeks or months at a time.
Each attack can last anywhere
from about 15 minutes to a few hours.
But they usually occur everyday,
sometimes several times a day
until the serious is over.
Maybe your never-ending headache
could be more like a cluster headache,
just without any breaks in between tests.
Animator, I actually think I’m getting a headache.
Could you just do something about it?
Oh, I don’t have a head any more. I guess.
That solved the problem.
So what’s the worst headache or migraine
that you’ve ever had?
How long did it last?
Do you have them often?
Let me know in the comment section below or tell us
what should we talk about next?
