Headaches

About Headaches

Headaches can affect each person differently, varying from sensation, to severity of pain, to duration. Some feel a pounding, pulsating feeling in their forehead, while others suffer one-sided head pain that connects from their eyes all the way towards the back of their head, where the optic nerve is located. In any case, headaches are so common, it’s not surprising the condition doesn’t warrant a check-up. For those that suffer severe headaches, however, immediate medical assistance is required.

Headaches symptoms & Causes

Headaches can be caused by many things. They can be caused by TMJD (temporomandibular joint dysfunction), low blood sugar, side effects of certain drugs (like nitroglycerin), stress, fatigue, etc. With these many varying symptoms, headaches are divided into two categories: 

  • Migraine
  • Tension headaches.

Diagnosis of this can be as simple as talking to your doctor. Once a professional can diagnose the root cause of your headaches, treatment can proceed.
