  Headache pain

Headache pain is so common that it seems to be a natural, though unpleasant, part of daily life. The source of pain can vary from headache to headache. Differentiating between different types of headache pain is important when deciding upon the proper treatment.

Migraine Headache Pain

This type of headache pain throbs on one side of the head and can be severe and debilitating. Migraines are a kind of vascular headache which may be rooted in abnormalities in the brain's blood flow system.
Stress and particular foods often trigger migraine headache pain. While these triggers may cause other types of headaches as well, it's important to note that only migraine headaches affect the entire body. Reactions to migraine headache pain can include nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light, sound and movement.

Tension Headache Pain

Tension-type headache pain can be triggered by stress, hunger or fatigue. Their symptoms fit those of the stereotypical headache--pressure and aching.

Cluster Headache Pain

Sudden and severe, cluster headaches have a short duration, but can attack up to six times a day. They have not only been known to attack repeatedly during the course of several weeks but in some cases can last for years at a time.

Sinus Headache Pain

Swelling, irritation and possibly an infection of the sinuses is the trigger for this type of headache pain. It can be easily confused with migraine and tension headache pain.
