Types of Headaches

Headaches are familiar to nearly everyone: in any given year, almost 90% of men and 95% of women have at least one. In the vast majority of cases, however, the pain isn’t an omen of some terrible disease.

Here are the most common type of headaches :

  • Migraines – Intense pain on one side of the head always repeated in the same area. It is accompanied by disturbances of vision and hearing, nausea and vomiting.
  • Headaches caused by Digestive Problems – Headaches accompanied by stomach, kidney, intestinal and gallbladder ailments. Sometimes linked with overindulgence of alcohol, food sensitivities and food additives.
  • Stress headache – Pain runs from the neck to the top of the skull.
  • Tension headache – These muscle contraction headaches cause mild to moderate pain from the neck to the forehead.
  • Sinus headache – Inflammation of the lining of one of the eight sinus cavities can cause a deep, dull, chronic ache around the eyes, nose and head.
  • Anxiety headaches – Pain crosses the forehead.

      Magnesium deficiency causes headaches. o increase your magnesium intake, try consuming magnesium-rich foods such as bananas, dried apricots, avocados, almonds, cashews, brown rice, legumes and seeds,” suggests Palinski. Can you say caliente? It may sound unusual, but spicy foods such as salsa and hot peppers may help you snap back from a headache faster.

      ome people with tension headaches have very sensitive areas, known as trigger points, at the back of the neck or in the shoulders. Injecting a local anesthetic into these areas may eliminate the pain and prevent the headache from occurring again. There are also a number of medications that can help keep tension headaches at bay. If non-drug therapies aren’t giving you the relief you need, talk with your doctor about the medication options that might be right for you.

      Try for 7 to 8 hours a night and stick to a regular sleep schedule. Make an effort to go to bed at the same time every night and wake up at the same time every morning. Don’t change that pattern much, even on weekends.

  4. I am so accustomed to eyestrain headaches, I seldom notice unless they are extreme or when I think about it. I’ve had crows feet since my early 20s. You can call me Mr. Magoo.
