Headaches cause pressure and pain, typically on both sides of the head and in the areas of the back of the neck, the forehead, and the temples. This pain can last for as little as thirty minutes and as long as a week.
Tension headaches are the most common and are triggered by anxiety, muscle strain, and stress. This is the pattern for a typical tension headache. Other kinds of headaches follow different patterns.
Cluster headaches are significantly more painful than tension headaches and happen in a series of several occurrences in a given period of time, in clusters at a time. They are focused on one side of the head, usually around one eye, and commonly awaken the sufferer in the middle of sleep. Though extremely painful, these headaches last for short periods of time and are followed by pain-free intervals. This headache pattern can last for weeks or months and typically show up around the same time every year. They are commonly and mistakenly associated with allergies and job-related stress.
Headaches associated with sinus are commonly confused with migraines, but they do not share any symptoms other than pain. Sinus headaches are accompanied by cough, congestion, facial pressure, fever, stuffy or runny nose, or other symptoms of sinus infection. The pattern of pain for this type of headache tends to move because the pressure shifts as the congestion moves. Once the congestion is cleared, the pressure is gone and the pain follows.
Some headaches are caused by birth defects or serious medical conditions. Chiari malformation symptoms typically affect the back of the head as the skull pushes against parts of the brain. Thunderclap headaches manifest very quickly and reach extreme pain levels in less than a minute. This symptom could indicate serious issues stemming from a burst blood vessel in the brain.
Migraine pain is intense and severe enough to stop you from participating in daily activities. It affects visual and mental clarity, causes nausea, sensitivity to light and noise, and recur on a regular basis. For some people, migraines are preceded by a variety of signs from the body like unusual food cravings, depression, frequent yawning, neck stiffness, constipation, and many other indicators that will be singular to the sufferer.
