Not Tonight Dear, I have a headache
Actually I've never said that to my husband, but I do regularly get really bad tension headaches. The kind that are created by huge bunches of knots in your shoulders and back, but make your head pound right behind your eyes. In a lot of ways I think they're almost as bad as migrane headaches. They just hang there and create a dull pain that makes you miserable all day long. Migranes are stronger, and more painful, but don't seem to hang around as long, or happen as often. Tension headaches, at least for me happen at least once a week. Maybe I need more warm baths and chocolate. Seriously though, there is a product called Fioricet that I have to ask my doctor about. It takes away the pain of tension headaches.
