Headache: Most People Have Headaches Sometimes
Most people sometimes have a headache and it can sometimes be quite uncomfortable. But most painkillers are short-lived.
The headaches are usually temporary and go away on their own. However, if the pain is worrisome, do not hesitate to contact your doctor. A doctor should check for any type of acute, recurrent or fever-related headache.
Stress, migraines and clusters are the types of headaches. Migraines and cluster headaches are types of vascular related headaches. Physical fatigue pain is exacerbated in vascular related headaches. The blood vessels in the tissues around the head become swollen or enlarged causing your head to throb with pain. Migraines are the most common type of vascular headache and occur more commonly than cluster headaches.
Cluster headaches usually strike in rapid succession and last for weeks or months. Cluster headaches are more common in men and can be extremely painful.
Sinus headaches can be the result of a sinus infection or an allergy. Most sinus headaches after a cold or flu are caused by inflammation of the sinus passages (air cavities) behind and above your nose. Increasing pressure on the sinuses as they fill or become infected can cause headaches. The pain is usually intense and persistent and starts in the morning and increases when you bend.
