Headache

A headache is the most common symptom of pain. Almost everyone experiences it at some point in their lives. A headache can include pain anywhere in the head and neck region. Some people experience headaches quite often, while others may rarely have symptoms of a headache.

 

There are many reasons one may experience a headache. The most common type is a tension headache, where muscles in the shoulders, neck, scalp, and jaw may be tight. They can also be related to depression and anxiety. If one doesn’t sleep enough or drink enough water, this can also cause a headache.

 

Some people may experience migraines, which are recurrent severe headaches that may cause a whole host of symptoms including nausea, sensitivity to light, or experiencing an aura (visual disturbance).

 

Other types of headaches include cluster headaches and sinus headaches. Most often, the pain symptoms can be treated with acetaminophen or NSAIDs, like ibuprofen.
