Tension-type headaches(TTH) may be caused by muscle tension around the head and neck. Chronic contraction of the temporalis muscle caused by the teeth clenching is one of the main cause. Treatment: Using over-the counter pain medicines, prescription drugs, if having chronic or bad pain, avoiding things that trigger headache.

Headache on ≥15 days/month was reported by 10.5% respondents (gender- and age-standardized prevalence 10.4%), and associated with low socioeconomic status.
