Types of Headaches
Migraine Headache: The causes for migraine headaches are not yet clear. However, research has shown that there can be a genetic component to this condition which can afflict multiple individuals within a family.
Migraines are typically moderately to severly painful and can last up to 3 days. They are usually accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to noise, odours and light.
Tension Headache: One of the most commonly experienced headaches among adults, these headaches can last from 30 minutes to several days, with pain levels ranging from mild to moderate. This type of headache can be caused by tension in the muscles of the back, shoulders, and scalp.
Office workers often experience tension headaches due to long hours of sitting in front of a computer performing repetitive motions with the arms and shoulders.
Sinus Headache: Sinus headaches are typically associated with a deep and constant headache pain with painful pressure around the cheekbones, forehead and bridge of the nose.
These headaches usually occur with other sinus symptoms like a runny or stuffy nose.
Headaches are often triggered by causes such as:
- Stress and anxiety
- Inadequate rest
- Vigorous exercise, dehydration or skipped meals
- Changes in temperature, weather and barometric pressure
- Poor sitting or standing posture
- Strong odours like perfumes
