    Default NFs - Headaches?

    hello fellow NFs, and others.

    I just realized the other day that a good chunk of NFs that I know happen to get headaches a lot. My mom (INFJ) is always in a constant migrane. I get headaches from time to time if there is a bit of sensory overload. This happens when I go to Six Flags for example. It is probably from hyper sensitivity to my environment, and lots of stuff moving constantly around me. Another INFP I know gets headaches a bit. Two INFJ friends of my friend get migranes quite a bit. I was just wondering if this is true for any other NFs.

    My one ENFJ friend rarely gets them but he is so oblivious to everything it's not much of a suprise.

    Well I guess ENFJs are immune to it. I don't really get headaches.

    I do get it quite often. I even went to get a brain scan, there was nothing wrong. My doctor says it's from stress, or thinking too much.

    I don't get headaches, but when they do come, they come bad. I don't like being in places which stimulate sensory overlode.

    Funny thing is that I hate medicines, all of them, but any of the headache medicines actually do their job well.

    I've read that NF's are prone to headaches. It is because of their sensitivity and always scanning their environment, or that's what the article said.

    Yeah, I get them, but my family also has a history...

    I have rarely had headaches but when I do they are whoppers.

    For about five years, every January, like clockwork, I would get these cluster headaches complete with projectile vomiting. One lasted for two weeks until I went to the doctor's and told him I was not leaving his office until he gave me something to make it stop!

    Don't think I've had one for couple of decades now.

    I sympathize with anyone who has them as they were totally disabling.

    I can relate to the muscle tension thing, though. Back of my neck when I'm on overload.
