About Common Types of Headaches

Headaches come in different varieties, and each can command different forms of treatment. At MD Pain, we treat all types of headaches, ranging from the most common to the most unusual. Primary headaches, such as tension headaches and migraines, originate from neurological factors, while secondary headaches, like those caused by underlying medical conditions, require thorough evaluation and management by our headache specialists in Denver.

Tension Headaches

Whether a person gets migraines, cluster headaches, primary headaches, sinus headaches, tension headaches, or TMJ headaches, various potential methods can bring relief. Because headaches have various etiologies, an expert in pain management is an excellent place to seek migraine treatment. Skilled physicians understand how various headaches evolve and therefore understand various treatment methods.

Cluster Headaches

Cluster headaches are relatively rare. Further, while headaches tend to plague women more than men, cluster headaches are more common in males.

These headaches are characterized by a series of headaches that usually occur on one side of your head or near the eye area. The series of attacks come in clusters lasting from 15 minutes to three hours and can be a daily occurrence for weeks or months on end.

The cause of cluster headaches is still an unsolved scientific mystery, but it’s believed that cluster headaches are caused by the body suddenly releasing histamine as an allergic response near the trigeminal nerve (a facial nerve).

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the Symptoms of a Headache?

When you get headache pain, you may experience a range of symptoms. The primary head pain may feel dull and achy or sharp and intense. The pain may occur on one side of your head or the other, or it may manifest at the back of your head. This head pain may be accompanied by other symptoms, including nausea and vomiting, sinus pressure, or a feeling of tightness around the head.

With chronic migraine headaches, other head pain symptoms develop, including things like:

Sensitivity to light and sound
Pounding or throbbing pain on one side of the head
Hot and cold sensations
Blurred vision
Visual disturbances like flashing dots, wavy lines, or blind spots (auras)

Some migraine sufferers also experience a pre-migraine stage, called prodrome, where they may have food cravings, concentration issues, and irritability, among other symptoms.

What Causes Headaches and Migraines?

Headaches and migraines may occur on their own, called primary headaches, or they may be a side effect of another condition. These are called secondary headaches.

Headaches may occur with an infection, such as a sinus or ear infection, or with conditions like glaucoma and meningitis. Dehydration can cause headaches, as can high blood pressure.

Chronic headaches, including migraines, can result from extreme stress and carrying tension in and around the neck. They can also be brought on by certain foods, food additives, or alcohol.

Your pain management specialist at Metro Denver Pain Management (MD Pain) finds a solution that can reduce the severity and frequency of your headaches and migraines. Depending on the specifics of your case, your doctor may suggest:

  • Therapeutic massage

  • Occipital Nerve Blocks
