Headache and Migraine causes
Tension type headaches are very common and will affect over 80% of people at some stage of their lives.
There are over 300 types of headache but most fall into three categories:
- Tension Type Headache
- Cervicogenic Headache (neck headache)
Head pain can have many causes, not just migraine.
Some uncommon causes of your head pain may be sinister, and might include brain tumours, aneurysms, meningitis and other systemic illnesses. These are rare and would require a thorough investigation.
Therefore accurate diagnosis is essential to help guide the appropriate treatment of headache conditions. Correctly identifying the cause will lead to better treatment.
Are a chronic neurological disorder characterised by episodic attacks of head pain and associated symptoms.
Migraine pain will always present on one side only (although the side can change between attacks). The pain is often described as throbbing and is of moderate to severe intensity. The pain will cause avoidance of normal activities such as attending school or going to work.
Sufferers will usually have one or more of nausea, photophobia (hypersensitivity to light), and photophobia (hypersensitivity to noise).
Migraine headaches can last between 4 hours and – in extreme cases – for up to three days.
Is the most common type of primary headache. The forehead, upper neck and temple regions may experience a tight band sensation causing varying severity of pain for the sufferer.
Stress and tension are major causes of this type of headache; poor postures and tight or weak muscles are usually a contributing factor.
As the symptoms are not as severe as migraine, tension headache is only considered a problem if it becomes frequent or chronic.
