Headache Symptoms and Their Origins
If you're among the 45 million Americans suffering from chronic headaches or the 28 million struggling with migraines, you may be wondering why you're plagued with such a debilitating issue. Different kinds of headaches produce different symptoms and may stem from different underlying triggers. Examples include:
- Tension headaches - These common headaches occur when a muscle spasms in the neck tug on pain-sensitive membranes, which then refer dull, aching pain signals throughout the head.
- Migraine headaches - These brutal headaches, which may go on for days at a time, are accompanied by nausea, light/sound sensitivity, lightheadedness, and other dreadful symptoms. Biochemical abnormalities in the brain seem to trigger blood pressure changes in the head to create these symptoms. Triggers may be as diverse and unpredictable as weather changes, flashing lights, and particular food ingredients. Some people experience a combination of tension and migraine headaches.
- Cluster headaches - These intense headaches occur in "clusters," repeatedly causing pain in or near the eye. Cervical spinal imbalances can make people more vulnerable to cluster headaches.
