Headaches can be caused or impacted by many factors aside from your treatment, such as dehydration, stress, reduced food intake or changes with sleep.
If you are experiencing headaches during treatment, here are some tips to help manage them:
Stay hydrated & aiming to drink over 2L of water per day
- Our Health Coaches have made this great video with some hacks to drink more water
Try relaxation techniques
- Stress and anxiety can contribute to headaches. Practicing relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, yoga, or meditation can help reduce stress and alleviate headaches.
Avoid possible triggers
- Certain foods, such as caffeine, alcohol, and chocolate, can trigger headaches. Try to identify any possible headache triggers and minimise their use.
If your headaches persist or if you are concerned about your symptoms, don't hesitate to reach out to our Medical Support team, please message them here.
You should go to a hospital's emergency department or call triple zero (000) for an ambulance if your headache: worsens in severity, it suddenly wakes you up at night, is thunderclap in nature, or if you are noticing visual disturbance or neurological symptoms (changes in sensation, coordination, slurred speech or weakness)
