Headaches can have causes that aren’t due to underlying disease. Examples include lack of sleep, an incorrect eyeglass prescription, stress, loud noise exposure or tight head wear.
It is important to distinguish whether a given headache is occurring in isolation, or caused by other health concerns. Some of the most common types of headaches are:
Migraine Headaches A patient with migraine headaches typically feel intense throbbing on one side of their head, usually behind the eye. The person experiences sensitivity to light and sound. Nausea and vomiting can be common. About 1/3 people experience an ‘aura’ before the onset of the migraine which is a visual disturbance of flickering lights and partial vision loss. Migraines are recurrent and a migraine attack can last up to 3 days. Triggers can include: stress, dehydration, certain medications and foods, and loud noise.
Tension Headaches Tension headaches are very common, with most people experiencing them as dull, constant pain on both sides of the head. They usually last for 30 minutes to several hours. They are usually caused by loud noise, lack of exercise, bad posture and poor sleep.
Cluster Headaches Cluster headaches are severe and recurrent headaches that are 6x more likely in men than women. Patients describe an intense pain behind one eye. Other symptoms include sensitivity slight and sound, restlessness and eye watering. Cluster headaches usually last between 15 minutes to 3 hours. Episodes can last for weeks to months, and typically occur at the same time every day.
Cervicogenic Headaches Cervicogenic headaches are secondary headaches, meaning they are caused by underlying problems in the neck and mid-back. Patients with this type of headache typically also suffer from neck pain and stiffness. Most of these headaches occur on one side of the head, starting from the back of the neck and radiating toward the front. Other symptoms include: decrease in neck range of motion, stiffness of the neck, pain in the shoudlder and mid-back
