Headache

Trying to relieve the pain of head ache

Everyone suffers from a headache sooner or later. Head aches can range from merely annoying to completely debilitating. There are two kinds: primary and secondary. A primary head ache is one where the pain of the ache itself is the main concern, like a migraine. A secondary head ache is when the ache is only a symptom of an underlying problem. An example of a secondary would be one affecting the sinus.

Symptoms

The primary symptom of a head ache is pain in the head. Depending on the type you have, the pain may be located around the eye, on one side of the head, in the back of the head or in the forehead. Secondary symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, a bloody nose, an aura preceding the head ache, and visual disturbances.

Causes

Headaches can be caused by tension, stress, dehydration, low blood sugar, lack of sleep, hormonal changes, depression or anxiety. Some are also triggered by certain foods or caffeine. Some are caused by allergies, exercise, eating cold foods quickly or may be related to other events like menstruation, disease or other problem.

Cautions

It is normal for everyone to get the occasional headache, but if you experience pain along with additional symptoms such as losing your balance or unusual pains in your neck, you should seek the guidance of a medical professional immediately.
