Headache

There are over 150 types of headaches and the symptoms and treatment depends on the type of headache the individual has.

Tension headaches are one of the most common types of headaches and individuals may experience mild to moderate pain that comes and goes over time with no other symptoms. Migraine headaches, on the other hand, can have other symptoms like sensitivity to light, noise or smells, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, and an upset stomach.

Cluster headaches can be considered to be one the most severe types of headaches and individuals may feel an intense burning or piercing pain behind or around one eye.

Individuals may also experience chronic daily headaches for 15 days or more a month for longer than three months. They may be chronic migraines, chronic tension headaches, new daily persistent headaches, or hemicrania continua.

Another type of headache people may seek treatment for are sinus headaches. This happens when the sinuses or cavities in the head get inflamed.

An individual with a head injury may also experience post traumatic headaches, which sets in after the head injury. This type of headache is usually a dull ache that gets worse from time to time and may be accompanied by vertigo, light-headedness, memory problems, trouble concentrating, irritability, and feeling tired quickly.

While these headaches may last a few months, it is recommended that the individual visits a general practitioner.  Some forms of headaches are indicative of other issues requiring further investigation.
