About Headache Treatments
A headache is characterized by pain in any area of the head. Pain may be on one or both sides of the head, localized, or radiate throughout. Headache pain may be a dull ache, sharp pain, or a throbbing sensation.
Types of Headaches
Tension headaches are the most common headaches experienced. They are characterized by a mild to moderate pain that feels as if there is a tight band wrapped around the head. The cause of a tension headache is unknown and treating them often calls for healthy habits and proper use of medications.
Migraines are chronic headaches characterized by significant pain that can last for hours or even days. Often, preceding a migraine, an individual will experience flashes of light, blind spots, or tingling in the limbs. Accompanied by migraines, individuals may experience nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound.
Cluster headaches are headaches that occur in clusters or cyclical patterns. These headaches are known as one of the most painful types of headache. They are characterized by bouts of frequent attacks that can last weeks and even months, followed by a period of remission that can last for months and sometimes years. Although they are very painful, they are not life-threatening. Treatments can shorten the length and severity of cluster headaches.
