Certain scents and deodorants may activate your nose and nervous system and this excess stimulation may also cause an unexplained headache.


Mobile Phones

If you have the habit of staring at your mobile for hours together, you are bound to get a headache as your eyes undergo lots of stress and pressure while reading the small mobile monitor.


Certain Processed Foods

Certain processed foods contain a chemical known as tyramine which could dilate the blood vessels and may cause headache.



Pulling your hair very tight in order to get your pony tail right may also cause an unexplained headache.


Sleep Issues

If exercise gives you a headache, it could be because the blood vessels inside the head swell during intense activity. It is better to consult a doctor to suggest other alternatives to keep yourself active.
