Share

Should you have occasional headaches which can be mild in nature, you probably have tension headaches. On the other extreme, in the event that you’ve intense headaches with pounding pain you are incapacitated by that, it is probably a migraine diagnosis.

It’s hard to be sure what kind of headache it’s if your headache is moderate, as well as your headache diagnosis may be more complex. You as well as your doctor may need some time to know in case your headache that is moderate is a symptom of another health condition, a strong tension headache, or a mild migraine.

Symptoms of Head Pain

Headaches are caused by another illness, plus they disappear when that illness goes away. They often accompany colds, the flu, and injuries. By producing a headache, in case you start or stop a medication, your body may complain.

In certain situations, your headache is a sign of a serious illness. In case your headache is accompanied by you should call your doctor, or visit an emergency room or urgent care clinic:

  • Any combination of nausea, sluggishness, confusion, or a head injury
  • A fever with pain when you bend your head
  • blurry vision
  • severe pain in one eye
  • Pain and sensitivity around your cheeks and eyes

Diagnosis: Types of Head Pain

You and your doctor can distinguish between a light migraine along with a strong tension headache. Your visit will start using a physical exam that includes capturing or updating your health history.

Together, your doctor and you will explore the symptoms that separate migraines from other headaches with questions such as:

  • Can you experience a pre-headache period where you are abnormally fatigued or feel strange?
  • What would you experience when you feel the headache coming on?
  • What makes your headaches worse?
  • Would you vomit or get nauseated with your headaches?
  • How often have you been experiencing headaches?
  • How long do your headaches typically last?
  • How do your headaches affect your vision? What do you really see?
  • Do your headaches make you sweat or give you the chills?
  • What would you experience or feel throughout your headache, especially in the rest of your body?

If these questions lead you to describe migraine symptoms, your doctor will probably treat you for migraines with self-help strategies and a triptan medication. If the treatments reduce your migraine pain and discomfort, you’re able to be confident of a migraine diagnosis. If your answers don’t fit the migraine headache profile, your doctor may conclude that you suffer from strong tension headaches.

She or he might refer you to a neurologist for additional exams and tests, to be sure your headaches aren’t related to a different health condition.

Additional Topics: Cervicogenic Headache and Chiropractic

Neck pain associated with whiplash-associated disorders resulting from an automobile accident are reportedly the most prevalent cause for discomfort along the cervical spine. The sheer force of an impact from a rear-end car crash or other traffic incident can cause injuries or aggravate a previously existing condition. While neck pain is commonly the result of damage to the complex structures of the neck, cervicogenic headaches may also result due to neck issues. Chiropractic care can help carefully restore the alignment of the cervical spine to relieve headaches and neck pain.
