Hello everyone
I've been suffering for just a under a week with a dull headache everyday for most of each day. It's never been an extremely painful headache but rather a slight pain on the top of my head everyday. It seems to improve when I lay down but never ceases completely. I've got no other symptoms along with it and feel completely fine. I'm 18 years old and just went off to college, the headaches started a few days after moving in. It's been quite hot and humid lately too but ive never gotten heachaches for this extended period of a time. The headache is also not worsened by exercise or bending over, as it remains constant all day long.
Thanks for the answers!

Could be stress and/or dehydration.

Try controlled breathing, slow in breath 1 2 3 hold 1 slow exhale 1 2 3 4. this will naturally calm your system down. Do this 5 or 6 times in a row. You can do it anyway, anytime and no one will know.

Stay away from the caffaine drinks, down the water. Especially in the heat, add lemon slices if you can or orange slices.

If you do not feel better in a day or two, I would go to the Wellness Center or call your doctor.

Peace and strength
