    External compression headaches

    External compression headaches can occur when anything worn on your head puts continuous pressure on your forehead or scalp. They're most often experienced by athletes who use helmets, eye protection or both for sports. External compression headaches are also sometimes known by names that come from the type of equipment causing the headache, such as "swim-goggle headache" or "football-helmet headache." Other common causes of external compression headaches include tightfitting hats and headbands. With external compression headaches, the solution is as obvious as the cause. Simply remove the headwear causing the pressure.

    Symptoms

    The pain of external compression headaches is often described as moderate, constant pressure. It hurts most in the area where the object is pressing on your head. As long as the headwear is in place, the pain may get progressively worse.

    Treatment

    To end your headache, remove the headwear that's causing the pressure. Further treatment is rarely needed. If you have a history of migraines, wearing tight headwear may trigger an attack that requires migraine medication for relief.
