The Different Kinds Of Headaches
Migraines are a type of headache that can be mild to severe in nature. Patients experience pain on one side or both temples, often with sensitivity around the eyes (especially light), nose/nasopharynx area. In extreme cases, patients can also experience nausea, vomiting , dizziness and other serious side effects. Some people who get migraines may also have certain triggers which sets them off. Some of these migraine triggers can include food items like chocolate, beverages, powders, alcohol, cheese, sweeteners, caffeine, vitamins pills, humidity, weather and or temperature changes, and the list goes on. If you are suffering with a migraine, feel free to reach out to us so we can find a suitable solution to ease your pain.
The most common type of headache is the tension-type, which can be caused by tight muscles around your head and neck. The most common types of headaches are tension-headaches and/or muscle contractions. They can be caused by tight muscles, inflammation, or even a virus in your neck area that causes pain when you try to look up suddenly from lying down flat on the ground. The good news is these sorts of ailments don’t always need medication; they will go away without any treatment unless their frequency increases significantly over time. This means that, usually, the pain lessens as you stop doing the motion, or action that caused the pain.
The least common type of headache is cluster headaches, which occur when there’s an intense throbbing or sharp pain behind your eye. Patients often describe these attacks as being so painful that they can’t eat during them and have trouble sleeping afterwards because it feels like something stuck in their head will break off at any moment – even though this doesn’t actually happen!
Chronic Migraines are no strangers to the world of medicine. Chronic headaches are a painful and frustrating condition that can range from being occasional to constant. There may be days when you don’t suffer with any type of head pain, but if your average day includes having at least one severe headache then these are probably chronic ones too! The reason for this difference in severity depends on what causes them: Primary Chronic Headaches occur because of tension-type neck problems such as shopslifting syndrome, an existing migraine, or possibly another underlying condition.
Another type of headache that can be caused by an illness or medical condition are secondary headaches. Secondary headaches often occur as a result from one’s body fighting against something else, such as pain pills for instance (Trigeminal Neuralgia). Other times it may just take time to adjust after having experienced major trauma like Concussion Syndrome.
