Headache is a common reason for patients to seek medical attention. We see so many online queries on headache. If you are suffering from headaches, read this article because, understanding your problem can help you solving it.
There are many causes of headache, and if correctly diagnosed and treated , you may become ?Headache? free.

Common Causes Of Headaches:

Migraine
Tension Type Headache
Idiopathic Stabbing
Cluster Headache
Exertional Headache
Systemic infection
Sinusitis
Head Injury
Vascular Disorders
Subarachnoid Haemorrhage
Brain Tumour
The patient who presents with a new, severe headache have causes that may be different from patient with recurrent headaches over many years.

People frequently ask me to get imaging of brain done to rule out the cause of headache. They have special attraction for MRI and CT Scans. But not every headache requires investigations. But there are headaches which require investigations. Let us understand , when a headache requires immediate attention.

Headache Symptoms that Suggest a Serious Underlying Disorder :

Worst headache ever
First severe headache
Headache worsening over days or weeks
Associated with Neurological Deficit
Fever or unexplained systemic signs
Vomiting preceding headache
Pain induced by bending, lifting, cough
Pain that disturbs sleep or presents immediately upon awakening
Known systemic illness
Onset after age 55
Pain associated with local tenderness, e.G, region of temporal artery
If you have any of these symptoms, you need to have a doctor consultation as soon as possible.

Now, let us read about two most common types of headaches, i.E Migraine and Tension type headache that we see in clinical practice.

Migraine :

Migraine, a very common cause of headache, more commonly affects women than men. It is usually an episodic headache which is usually unilateral (on one side of head) and is associated with certain features like:

Nausea (Feeling of vomiting)
Photophobia (Sensitivity to light)
Phonophobia (Sensitivity to sound)
Light-headedness
Scalp tenderness
Vomiting, Nausea (Feeling of vomiting)
Visual disturbances
Paresthesias (tingling sensations)
Vertigo
Alteration of consciousness
Diarrhea
Seizure
Confusion
People having migraine, usually during acute attacks, prefer to be alone and don?t want any sound, light, want to sleep in dark room.

Acute attacks are usually triggered by some stimulants called as ?triggers? which are commonly following :

Bright lights
Sounds
Hunger
Stress
Exertion
Hormonal fluctuations during menses
Lack of or excess sleep
Alcohol, Wine, Cheese or other chemical stimulation
Patients should try to notice their triggers and should do life-style adjustments to avoid them.

How to Deal with Migraines?

Patients having migraine should seek a medical consultation. There are drugs which are given to terminate acute attacks of migraine, as well as to prevent them.
They should have a fix routine of sleeping like from 10 pm to 6 am. They should not sleep for more than 30 min during daytime, as excessive sleeping during day time would cause problem in falling asleep during nighttime, leading to disturbance of sleep cycle and precipitation of migraine.
They should avoid wine, cheese, lemon.
Tension - Type Headache :

It is a chronic head-pain syndrome characterized by tight, band like discomfort. It is bilateral (means on both sides of head). The pain typically builds slowly, fluctuates in severity and may persist more or less continuously for many days. The headache may be episodic or chronic (present >15 days per month). It may be associated with sleep disturbances.

How to Deal with Tension Type Headache?

The pain can generally be managed with simple analgesics but should be taken under medical supervision as they have a long list of adverse effects. There are other drugs too, but can be given only under medical supervision.
Behavioral therapies including relaxation are also effective.
Patients with this type of headaches are advised to throw away their ?Headaches? to prevent the ?Headache? , means they should try to sort out the tension or problem that is causing the headache.

Migrane can be managed with lifestyle changes and medications, try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation may help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. Rest and relax. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. It is very important keep a headache diary. Continue keeping your headache diary even after you see doctor. It will help you learn more about what triggers your migraines and what treatment is most effective. A dose of riboflavin in appropriate dose as prescribed by me, also may prevent migraines or reduce the frequency of headaches. Coenzyme q10 supplements may decrease the frequency of migraines, magnesium supplements may also be used to treat migraines do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Dear Lybrate User, *Avoid hot, spicy foods, fermented foods, white sugar, white flour products, and sour or citrus fruits, because they aggravate the Pitta in your body. *Drink more water and eat more fiber, fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. *Avoid excessive sugar or salt, refined foods, animal products (meats and dairy), caffeine, tea, and alcohol, as these items will further lead to aggravation of Pitta. *Avoid direct exposure to the sun, as migraine headaches are predominantly a Pitta disorder and can be triggered by the hot sun. *Head massage with Bhringraj Oil is also beneficial. This massage gives a calming effect to your nervous system. *Headaches caused due to tension and worry can be alleviated through deep breathing and relaxation, especially in a lying down position in a quiet place. Inverted postures, or those where the head is lowered briefly, increase oxygen to the brain and can reduce headache-causing strain.

Why you are using Naproxen 500 for headache? Do you get any result? Migrain is a special category of headache most of them are cured or if not in some few, at least it can be brought down to bearable limit as any one have fewer time in life. I need little detail before going into treatment. How long you are having such headache? What is your occupation - a working lady or home maker? Do you have any other disease like high blood pressure, Diabetes etc? Since when you discovered that this is bothering you and when it started (what age). Do you feel nauseating (feeling like puke) or do vomit during head ache? Does the ache catch one particular area of your head or whole head? Do you have any sinusitis or eye problem? With answers of all these Qs you please comeback to my Private Q area to have a purposeful dialogue to provide you benefit. You wont have to pay anything for coming to private Q area. I want to be useful for your problem.
