Headaches can disrupt your day and significantly impact your well-being, often stemming from various factors beyond your treatment regimen. Dehydration, stress, changes in food intake, and alterations in sleep patterns are just a few contributors to this common ailment. If you're experiencing headaches during your treatment, there are several steps you can take to alleviate discomfort.

Here are some practical tips to help manage headaches effectively:

Stay hydrated: Aim to drink over 2 litres of water per day to maintain hydration levels. Our Health Coaches have curated a helpful video featuring innovative techniques to encourage hydration, making it easier to reach your daily water intake goals.

Practice relaxation techniques: Stress and anxiety can exacerbate headaches. Incorporate relaxation techniques such as deep breathing exercises, yoga, or meditation into your daily routine to promote relaxation and alleviate tension.

Identify and avoid triggers: Certain foods and substances, including caffeine, alcohol, and chocolate, can trigger headaches in some individuals. Take note of any potential triggers and minimise their consumption to reduce the frequency and severity of headaches.

If your headaches persist despite these measures or if you have concerns about your symptoms, don't hesitate to reach out to our Medical Support team for personalised assistance. Simply message them here to connect with our experienced nurses and pharmacists who can provide guidance and support tailored to your needs.

In cases of severe headaches accompanied by alarming symptoms, it's crucial to seek immediate medical attention. Visit the emergency department or call emergency services at triple zero (000) for prompt evaluation and treatment if your headache worsens in severity, suddenly wakes you up at night, is thunderclap in nature, or if you experience visual disturbances or neurological symptoms such as changes in sensation, coordination, slurred speech, or weakness.
