This is likely due to hormonal changes in the body during this time period.

These headaches can be caused by exposure to toxic chemicals, including lead, insecticides, organophosphate pesticides, chemical solvents, acetaldehyde from alcohol (a hangover), carbon tetrachloride, and some household cleaners.

Relief: Toxic headaches are treated by determining the cause of the headache and treating or removing it. Fast, cleanse or detox the body takes the opportunity to eliminate a lot of toxins that have built up over the years. Toxins can cause muscle tightness in the neck and shoulders.
