What Are Headaches?

Headaches are a painful and sometimes debilitating ailment that afflict an estimated 45 million Americans each year. This condition is defined as pain in any part of the head, in varying degrees of severity. Headache pain can be experienced on just one side of the human head or both, can be mild or severe, with pain that is sharp, a dull ache, or some level of discomfort in-between. This pain can appear out of nowhere or develop slowly over a period of hours. Some last for minutes; others last days.

The aches and pain of a headache can sometimes be little more than an annoyance. At other times, severe aches can be debilitating, preventing normal daily activities. Fortunately, osteopathic care is a proven option for helping to reduce patient head pain, alleviating other pain symptoms, and helping them to expedite their recovery.

What Causes this Condition?

These head pain conditions can take two forms, each with their own causes and contributing factors. For example, a primary headache like migraines and tension head pain, can be triggered by factors like:

  • Stress
  • Poor posture, especially in office settings or other sedentary work environments
  • Excessive nitrate consumption
  • Alcohol consumptions
  • Skipping meals, not getting enough liquids
  • Sleep deprivation

The second type, secondary headaches, are head pain resulting from another disease or medical condition. For example, dental problems, meningitis, blood clots and aneurysms, brain tumors, concussion, glaucoma, pain medication overuse, strokes, and many other ailments can result in secondary aches in the head. This type of secondary head pain includes sinus head pain, compression aches in the head, spinal headache, and similar conditions.

What Are the Symptoms of Headaches?

The typical headache involves pain sensations ranging from mild to moderate. Other signs and symptoms may include:

  • Pain that is throbbing or sharp
  • Pain that develops gradually or comes on suddenly
  • Light sensitivity, nausea, or vomiting, in instances where migraine pain is present
  • Stiffness in the neck, particularly with chronic pain
  • Sensitivity to loud noises
  • Some dizziness, especially with headache pain that lasts for more than an hour or two
  • A feeling of constant pressure around the top one-third of the skull.

While most head pain will resolve itself within an hour or more, prolonged incidents may indicate a more serious chronic condition. In addition, patients should seek immediate help if a severe headache is accompanied by mental confusion, paralysis in one area of the body, loss of motor skills, affected speech or sight, or dizziness and fainting.
