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.

    • 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.
