Headaches & Migraines Q & A
What causes headaches and migraines?
Part of the challenge in effectively treating head pain is that it has a wide variety of causes. Your head pain might come from the overactivity of your head’s pain structures. Or it could be caused by seemingly simple things, like stress and bad posture.
Then there are a number of underlying conditions that can cause head pain as a symptom, including:
- Sinus infections
- Ear infections
- Hormonal changes
- High blood pressure
- The flu
That’s just to name a few. Clearly, it can take some time to pinpoint the cause of your headache or migraine in order to effectively treat it. As a pain management expert, Dr. Cabaret takes that time so he can offer you the treatment you need to finally get some relief.
Is there a difference between a headache and a migraine?
While both exhibit as head pain, headaches and migraines are different. And being able to differentiate between them can help you get the right treatment for faster, more effective relief.
Headaches traditionally come with dull symptoms that feel like pressure throughout your head. Migraines, on the other hand, have a sharp, throbbing pain, and are often centralized to a certain part of your head. Additionally, these symptoms are unique to migraines:
- Blind spots
- Seeing spots or lights that flash
