The two common causes for the head hurting when shaken are sinus issues and tension headaches.
In tension headaches, the muscles of the head and neck region are in spasm to some degree. When you shake your head, the spasm increases and the head hurts more.
In sinusitis, since the sinuses are inflamed, shaking the head causes the inflamed tissue to hurt. If the headache continues in spite of the Excedrin, please consult your doctor.
Yes I have been having tension headaches for a while now. Well it pains on my head. What's sinusitis?
Sinusitis is inflammation of the tissues of some areas of the head called sinuses. These are mainly located in the bones of the cheek and the forehead. In your case, the pain is probably due to tension headaches.
Tension headaches do not usually last this long unless you have some underlying stress in your life. If it has been going on this long, you need to consult a doctor for a checkup.
