What Are Headaches?

Headaches refer to any pain in your head, top of your neck or jaw. Usually, it feels like a discomfort or pain inside your skull, the temples, or behind the nasal passages and eyes, at the top of your neck and behind your head, or around your head like a tight band. The exact location of the headache can direct us to it’s underlying cause. In certain situations, a headache refers to a feeling of consistent pressure, even if it does not actually cause a sharp or dull pain.

Occasional headaches can be caused by tension, stress, common cold or allergies and might be very short in duration. Severe and persistent headaches raise concerns about your overall health and well-being and therefore should be addressed immediately. Only once the underlying cause is established –is it possible to customize treatment plan .

Migraines used to be classified as severe and recurring headaches.  It has been more than a decade since that definition has changed.  Today even  recurring moderate headaches are classified as migraines.
