Headache Treatment

Depending on the severity of the headache, there are two types of treatments: Acute treatment refers to medication that is taken to relief the pain instantly and Preventive treatment refers to the medicines which are taken in regular basis to prevent to future attacks of headache for all types of headaches like chronic daily headache, tension type headache etc. Acute treatments done by pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen, triptans etc. and preventive treatments using anti-depressants, veramapil etc. Physical therapies like acupuncture etc. and a healthy lifestyle can also help.

Migraine Medicine

Various medicines are being used in migraine therapy as anti-Antidepressants, anticonvulsants, antihistamines, Glucocorticoids, analgesics, NSAIDS, triptans, caffeine, barbiturates and narcotic pain relievers. Migraine medications are of two types, one that abort or stop migraines from progressing once they start and the other prevents migraines from happening. Few medicines which are in excessive use are Aspirin, Naproxen (Naprosyn, Anaprox, Anaprox DS), Ibuprofen (Motrin), Acetaminophen (Tylenol) etc.

Chronic Migraines

Migraines can be episodic or chronic. Chronic migraines are painful migraine headaches that last longer and occur more frequently unlike episodic migraines that show acute attacks of severe headaches that last for short duration occurring at longer intervals. It is a distinct and defined sub-type of Chronic Daily Headache. It predominantly affects one side of the head causing throbbing, pulsating sensation accompanied by severe pain, nausea; vomiting, sensitivity to sounds, smells, and light and vision changes. These migraine headaches are triggered by irregular food habits, hormonal imbalances, sleep disorders etc.

Hemiplegic Migraines

Migraine attacks are episodic indications of a genetic neurological disease. Hemiplegic migraine is unilateral weakness that accompanies a migraine headache attack in a rare case. A person with hemiplegic migraine experiences a temporary weakness on one side of their body as part of their migraine attack which can impair sensation and may undergo speech difficulties, vision problems or confusion. There are two types of hemiplegic migraine – familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM) and sporadic hemiplegic migraine (SHM).

Silent Migraines

Silent migraines refer to migraines without migraine pain as it shows all typical symptoms of migraine but without pain. Prodrome, aura, pain and resolution are four distinct phases of migraine that include many symptoms. Few common symptoms are diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, food cravings, loss of appetite, fatigue, chills, increased urination, irritability, difficulty remembering or saying a word, auditory hallucinations etc.

Hemicrania Continua

It is a rare type of headache that prevails as continuous painful attacks on one side of the head which proves to be very severe and prolonging steadily for months or years. Patients may experience a jolting, stabbing and sharp pain resulting in symptoms similar to cluster headache or migraine like nosebleeds, congested nose, nausea, aversion to light, nervous system defects etc. it may be triggered by factors like stress, alcohol, sleep disorder, exercises etc.

Chronic Headaches

Also known as chronic daily headaches (CDH) which may be long-lasting or short-lasting. Most common types of chronic headaches are migraines, tension headaches, hemicrania continua and cluster headaches. Many factors are responsible for causing such headaches like food habits, weather changes, stress, medication, neurological issues etc.

Tension-type Headaches

Tension type headache is also called chronic daily headaches or chronic non-progressive headaches. This is one of the most common types of headache caused by the tightening of the muscles in the back of the neck and scalp resulting in reduced blood flow to the head that irritates the skin, muscles and the blood vessels. It promotes a steady, constant pain on both sides of the head which can last for hours, days or months which can later turn chronic. Tension type headaches are triggered by muscle strain, stress, fatigue, sleep disorder etc.

Ocular Migraines

This kind of disease is seen rarely in one out of every 200 people who have migraine. Ocular migraine causes loss of eyesight or blindness lasting less than an hour, along with a migraine headache. These types of migraines are also known as retinal, ophthalmic, or monocular migraines. Its shows symptoms like flashing lights, blind spots in your field of vision, blindness in the eye, vision loss can be a complication of retinal migraines, Vomiting, Unusual sensitivity to light or sound etc.

Cluster Headache

It is the least common but most severe type of primary headaches and unlike other headaches the painful attacks occurs multiple times a day in groups, as the name suggests and also referred to as ‘alarm clock’ as it occurs at the same time per day, often in the nights and early morning hours and can last for weeks or even months.

Cluster headaches are triggered by smoking, alcohol, histamines, nitroglycerin etc.

Sinus Headache

Sinuses are air spaces that develop from the nasal passages that help with air humidification and mucus secretion. Sinus headaches are headaches caused by inflamed sinuses (sinusitis) that reduces the ability for the mucus to drain, increasing pressure within the sinuses and leading to a sinus headache. Common causes of inflammation include allergies or colds.

Vascular Headache

The term ‘vascular headache’ was formerly used to describe certain types of headaches which were thought to be caused by the vascular effects like blood vessel swelling or other sensitivity of the arteries, hyperemia etc. Mainly dilation of the blood vessels causes this pounding or throbbing pain usually on one side of the head. Migraine headaches and cluster headaches are considered to be the most common type of vascular headache. It is triggered by stress, diet, weather change, light etc.

Throbbing Headache

A throbbing headache is a sensation of pounding, heaving, periodic, or explosive pressure in the head that affects all or a portion of the head. Throbbing headaches are often associated with migraine headaches, caffeine withdrawal, hangovers, Stress headache, cluster headache and sinusitis. It shows symptoms of nervous system disorder, nausea, vomiting, visual changes, other sensory changes, other body system disorders etc.

Hormone Headache

In women, the female hormone estrogen is responsible for the occurrence of the migraine headaches. The fluctuation in the hormone levels during the fluctuating hormone levels menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and menopause, and are also affected by oral contraceptives and hormone replacement therapies are a major contributing factor in hormone headaches like chronic headaches and menstrual migraines.
