What are the Three Types of Headaches?
Headache pain severity can range from a temporary mild annoyance to severe and debilitating. The three most common types of headaches are Migraines, Hypertension headaches, and stress headaches, each having their own specific symptoms and pain levels.
Migraines are primarily felt among the female population due to rapid changes in hormone levels, especially during the pre-menstrual period. A migraine is often disabling, causing severe “full head” pain that lasts a few hours or up to a few days. The symptoms associated with a migraine include intense pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound.
Hypertension headaches are caused by the presence of high blood pressure and can be extremely dangerous if not managed correctly and professionally. This type of headache will be felt on both sides of the head and exhibits a pulsating pain sensation.
Lastly, a stress or “tension” headache is the most common form of the three. Pain with a stress headache can range from mild to severe and will radiate behind the eyes, to the neck and forehead. Often, patients experiencing stress headaches describe the pain as a tight band around their forehead.
