It is not unusual for someone who has been
headache-free their whole life to develop a chronic
tension-type headache in their senior years. Often
this headache follows a major life change, such as
retirement or a serious illness that has reduced
mobility or independence. Someone who has just
settled down to retirement may be puzzled and
distressed at the onset of “tension” headaches
when all the pressure of the workplace is finally
out of their lives .
On careful questioning, it often becomes clear that
the headaches are related to an overall lowering of
mood or a loss of enjoyment of life - to depression
that may be slight or severe. Depression is only
one of many possible causes of tension-type
headache, but it should be suspected that
headaches follow some major life change.
