Not all headaches are the same, but they do have some things in common. For example, most people reach for a bottle of pain meds when a headache starts. As we’ll discuss, you have a better option available. Read on to learn about 4 unique headache types and 1 natural solution.
Tension – This is the most common form of a headache. It is characterized by a constant pressure or ache that is felt around the head. While these are one of the less severe forms of headaches, regular occurrence can compound the problem.
Cluster – This is perhaps the most painful form of a headache as well as the only type that affects men more often than women. These headaches occur on one side, come on suddenly, and present with debilitating pain. A person may also experience a runny nose or watery eye on the side of the head where the headache occurs.
Sinus – Another common form of a headache, these are the result of inflamed sinuses. If the problem occurs along with a sinus infection, there may also be a fever.
Rebound – These are headaches which are caused by the overuse of pain medication. That’s right. Many of the medications used to relieve headaches can actually cause them if taken too often.
