Take your headache pain seriously
According to John Hopkins Medicine; Headache is pain or discomfort in the head or face. It vary greatly in terms of the location and intensity of the pain, and how often the headaches occur. Types of headache may include: Migraine, Cluster Headache and Tension Headache.
Although most headaches are not life threatening and cannot be identified from a brain scan or blood test, we take them seriously. Headaches may cause substantial discomfort, and may severely affect an individual’s ability to perform at work or at school, enjoy family and social events or even carry on normal daily activities.
Headache symptoms depend on the type of headache. The frequency of headaches and the intensity of the symptoms may vary, too. Typical headache symptoms includes: Head usually hurts on both sides / Pain is dull or feels like a band or vice around the head / Slow onset of the headache / Pain may involve the back part of the head or neck.
Some headaches may need immediate medical attention including hospitalization for observation, diagnostic testing, or even surgery. Treatment is individualized depending on the underlying condition causing the headache.
