[anvplayer video=”5102101″ station=”998132″]

According to a study published in the Journal of Headache and Pain, nearly 16% of the world’s population suffers from a headache on any given day.

More than half of the population deals with a headache disorder every year.

Also, 26% report having a tension-type headache that causes mild to moderate pain.

Researchers say all types of headaches are more common in females than males – likely due to a difference in hormones. However, more serious types of headaches – like migraines – are nearly twice as common in women as men.

While chronic headaches can be debilitating, experts say there are ways to help ease the pain.

  • Look for different stressors in your life – like lack of sleep – that could be triggering your headache.
  • Be mindful of things like excessive noise or bright lighting that could worsen your condition.
  • Make sure to talk to your doctor about any preventative medication that you could be taking.
