What are Headaches?

In short, a headache is not a disease, but it may indicate that something is wrong. While most headaches are common and not life threatening, some may have an underlying cause that requires medical attention. The most common headaches are "tension", "stress' and "migraine" headaches. Tension and stress type headaches are classified differently than migraine headaches. Migraines tend to occur on only one side of the head and can be accompanied by nausea, vomiting and a hypersensitivity to light. If you have any type of frequent headache (occurring more than few times monthly), you may to need to see a medical practitioner to determine if something is contributing to the headache symptoms. What are the symptoms of tension-type headaches?The more common headaches are the tension-type, which usually presents itself on both sides of the head. There can also be a feeling of intense pressure and in particular at the temples or around the sinus cavity. At its most severe, a tension or stress headache can feel like a band tightening around the head. It may then spread to the front of the skull or the base of the head. While worrisome, tension type headaches will not prohibit a person's normal, everyday activities, as will a migraine. What causes headaches?Scientists are still trying to fathom the cause of most headaches. It was once surmised that that the dilation of blood vessels along with constriction caused most migraines, and that tension style headaches were caused by muscle contractions. Doctors also know that women tend to suffer more from occasional headaches as well as people with a family history of headaches. Anxiety, depression and stress can also be contributing factors as well as the over-use of headache relieving medication. Even with all these facts at their disposal, doctors are finding that solving the puzzle of headache's emotional and physical triggers is still elusive, as real explanations may be a tad more complex than once thought.Science is zeroing in on the problem; however, this leaves the 95 % of people who suffer from the condition at a loss of how to treat symptoms when they emerge.
