Headache Types

Headache Types

Goggle Headache

LOCATION AND SYMPTOMS

So-called because the nerves running from the orbit over the forehead are compressed in swimmers wearing tight-fitting goggles.

PRECIPITATING FACTORS

Constant pressure on the nerves of the scalp.

TREATMENT / PREVENTION

Such headaches can be prevented by changing the position of the goggles each day or using goggles with a single soft-rubber rim that fits around both ends and does not require a very right head strap in order to be watertight.
