16 Feb Are you suffering from one of the 4 Types of Chronic Headaches?
Almost everyone has experienced a headache. Headaches are thought to be associated with chemical activity in the brain, nerves or blood vessels in the head, muscles in the head and neck, or some combination of these factors.
The most common types of primary headaches are chronic daily headaches, tension headaches, migraines, and cluster headaches.
Tension headaches may be caused due to tight shoulder, neck or jaw muscles. They are also associated with anxiety, stress, and depression.
Migraine headaches come with moderate to severe pain that is often described as pounding, throbbing, or pulsing in nature. Migraine headaches may be accompanied by sensitivity to light and/or sound, nausea and loss of appetite. Most migraine patients are unable to go about their daily routine when the headache strikes.
Cluster headaches are associated with sharp pain behind the eye or in the eye region. They may occur many times a day and may last for months and then disappear completely for years.
Occipital neuralgia is a type of headache that occurs when the occipital nerves (they run up from the top of the spinal cord through the scalp) become inflamed or irritated. This pain is often described as jabbing or sharp, burning or throbbing in the head, even a tender scalp.
