Headaches Are a Real Pain

We’re surrounded by headaches.

Bustling traffic, noisy neighbors, relentless relatives, busybody bosses, and you’ll think of a few more. Those aren’t really headaches, although they may be causes.

Most of us will suffer at least one headache this year. More than 70 million people in this country suffer from intermittent headaches, according to a national survey.

About one in 10 individuals suffer the blinding pain of migraines and the accompanying complaints, such as sensitivity to light, noise and smells, nausea and upset stomach among others.

Sinus headaches usually are the result of infected sinuses and hover around the front of your face – forehead, nose and cheeks.

Cluster headaches hit about 1 percent of the population. They’re usually short but extremely painful and tend to occur in clusters – several times a day or at the same of time of day for several days.

Tension is the most common cause of the most common headaches. These types of headaches usually are a steady ache rather than a throbbing that’s a hallmark of many migraines.

Erasing these attacks calls for learning how to relax mentally as well as physically. Getting enough sleep is a good start. So is some form of regular exercise. Swimming, biking, walking and gardening are simple means to keep you moving enough to assure you of a good night’s sleep. If you’re experiencing headaches more than once a week for any reason, make an appointment with your primary-care physician to discuss their source and suggested solutions to the problem.
