Default Crying and Headaches (migraine)


migraine it causes. so here's the question....

Is it the act of crying, the tears that causes the headache or perhaps is it
the stress behind the tears that cause it??

I'm stumped on that one. I usually get the stress type headache AFTER the
stress has subsided, but if I cry I'm doomed.

If I don't have a headache I'll get one and if I have even a little tiny
headache then it ends up a big whopping migraine.

I know this is sort of a chicken and the egg kind of question, but I've
often wondered why that happens.
Anyone got a clue?

Just curious
Karen

I've trained myself not to cry too.

Although if I tear up at a sad movie it doesn't start a migraine, but if I
cry from real sadness about something real in my own life, I do. So I
think, for me, it's the stress behind the tears that causes the headache,
rather than just the tears.

Everyone thinks I'm so brave, and happy, and stable, because they never see
me cry. What a crock.

Warm hugs,

No doubt....crying has it's cost. I avoid it too. But it starts before the
tears...i can feel my head muscles expand before the tears start. If that
expansion starts, i'm doomed anyway and might as well cry.

I put crying in the same jacket as barfing and coughing. I avoid them as
best as a human can. But at times Mo Nature wins.

Crying is not god for my head though I think in the long run, it
releases chemicals which have built up. My son has always had a
headache if he cried over anything. I think maybe because for us, we
are so odour sensitive and the crying gets us all stuffed up and can't
breathe properly. I do know there is an allergy tie with my migraines
as I end up battling migraine plus allergy symptoms.

The act of crying causes a surge in cholinergic activity in the face and
head. This causes your mucous glands to activate, blood vessels to dilate,
and do forth and so forth. It is not surprising that it would cause a
headache. It is the same activation that causes the pain and associated
sympoms in cluster sufferers.

Thanks,

Mike

I find that it I need to cry , that I will feel better after a good
one----no headaches or anything----I have always heard that it is a
stress release

Take care, Joyce

And, what about the death of loved one? Is that
self-punishment as well? I think crying is a healthy
response to stress that is out of your control. I've cried
over lost loved ones, a pet I head to put to sleep, over
several lost relationships, and even at the birth of my
children. I've always felt better afterward.

Sometimes you can change your environment by, say, finding a
new job, but often, it's something out of your control and
trying to control something that is not within your perview
is a good definition of insanity.

Your post is neither true nor false, but insidious. It's a
certain path to pain and misery.
