Understanding the Types of Headaches

headaches
  • Tension headaches are the most prevalent type, often described as a dull, aching pain that affects both sides of the head. It is also commonly described as feeling as a tight band around your head. Many times tension headaches are caused by poor posture, jaw, or neck problems. 

  • Migraines are intense headaches characterized by pulsating or throbbing pain that can last for hours or even days. They often come with additional symptoms, such as sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, and visual disturbances. Migraines can be triggered by various factors, including hormonal changes, certain foods, stress, sensory stimuli, and changes in sleep patterns

 

  • Cluster headaches are intense, excruciating headaches that occur in cyclical patterns, usually lasting from weeks to months. A cluster headache commonly causes excoriating pain behind or around one eye. The pain may travel to the face, head, and neck. These types of headaches may also cause tearing and nasal congestion on the affected side. They are less common but incredibly debilitating
