Treatments for Your Headache Pain

About Headaches

Those who suffer from headache pain understand all too well how quality of life is negatively impacted by headaches. Headaches can make simple tasks more difficult, and take the joy out of daily life. Severe headache pain may make it difficult or impossible to perform daily routines.

5 Types of Headaches

Tension Headaches

Tension headaches feel like a constant pain or pressure around the head, at the temples or back of the head and neck.

Cluster Headaches

Cluster headaches affect more men than women. They are recurring headaches that occur in groups. They appear suddenly and are characterized by severe, debilitating pain on one side of the head, and are often accompanied by a watery eye and nasal congestion or a runny nose on the same side of the face.

Sinus Headaches

When a sinus becomes inflamed or infected, it can cause headache pain. Sinus headaches usually come with a fever.

Rebound Headaches

Overuse of painkiller medication for headaches can lead to rebound headaches.

Excessive medication may cause the brain to shift into an excited state, causing more headaches. Rebound headaches are a symptom of withdrawal as the level of medicine drops in the bloodstream.

Migraine Headaches

Migraines usually last between 4 and 72 hours. They may include one-sided pain, throbbing pain, and pain so severe it may interfere with routine activity. Symptoms may include sensitivity to light and sound, nausea and vomiting. A migraine may be preceded by an aura such as visual distortions or hand numbness.
