By:   |   Jul 08, 2018   |   Views: 14   |   Comments: 0

Headache can affect just anybody and everybody. It is pain in the head, which involves the area located above the eyes or the ears, behind the head or in the back of the upper neck. The muscles or blood vessels of the head, neck area swell, tighten, or undergo other changes that put pressure on the surrounding nerves and cause a headache.

What are the types of headaches?

There are two types of headaches -

1. primary headaches - accounts for 90% of all headaches. This is not related to any other disease. There are three types of primary headache -

a. tension headaches - associates with stress, anxiety and depression.

b. cluster headaches - occur daily, over a long period.

c. migraine.

2. secondary headache - associated with an underlying condition such as cerebro-vascular disease, head trauma, infection, tumour or some metabolic disorder (such as diabetes, thyroid problem). In these cases, the underlying condition must be diagnosed and treated.

3. One may also suffer from something called "mixed" headache in which tension headache or secondary headache triggers migraine headaches.

What causes headaches?

Almost everybody must have had an experience of a headache sometime or the other. Headaches are more common in women and in people with a genetic history of headaches.

Tension headaches are caused by stress, muscular tension, vascular dilation, postural changes, prolonged coughing/sneezing, and fever.
Physical conditions that can lead to chronic muscular tension and thereby, headache include:

* Anxiety

* Arthritis in neck or spinal cord

* Degenerative bone disease in the neck or spine

* Depression

Cluster headaches may be due to alcohol abuse or the side effects of certain medications, including drugs that dilate or constrict blood vessels. A low level of endorphins (natural painkilling compounds found in the brain) may cause frequent, severe, or chronic headache pain.

Other common factors that make people more prone to headache are -

* constipation

* acidity

* excessive consumption of tea, coffee, nicotine

* deficiency of oxygen in the blood

* approach to a menstrual cycle (in case of women) google_ad_channel = "7940249670, " + AB_cat_channel + AB_unit_channel; google_language = "en"; google_ad_region = 'test';
