Migraine and other types of headaches, such as tension headache and sinus headache, are painful. Migraine symptoms include a pounding headache, nausea, vomiting, and light sensitivity and are treated with anti-nausea drugs and abortive or preventive medications. Headache remedies include pain relievers.
If you feel throbbing that begins on one side and causes nausea or sound/light sensitivity, you may have a migraine. Visual disturbances, such as flickering points of light, may precede this type of headache. You may also notice:
- Moderate to severe pain (often described as pounding, throbbing pain) that can affect the whole head, or can shift from one side of the head to the other
- Sensitivity to light, noise or odors
- Blurred vision
- Nausea or vomiting, stomach upset, abdominal pain
- Loss of appetite
- Sensations of being very warm or cold
- Fever (rare)
- Bright flashing dots or lights, blind spots, wavy or jagged lines (aura)
If you feel a steady pain in the area behind your face that gets worse if you bend forward and if you also have nasal congestion; you may have a sinus headache. This type can lead to:
- Deep and constant pain in the cheekbones, forehead or bridge of the nose
- Pain that gets worse with sudden head movement or straining
- Pain along with other sinus symptoms, like nasal discharge, a feeling of fullness in the ears, fever, and facial swelling.
If you feel a dull, steady pain that feels like a band tightening around your head, you may have a tension headache. There are different types:
Episodic Tension Headaches (occur less than 15 days per month)
- Pain is mild to moderate, constant band-like pain or pressure
- Pain affects the front, top or sides of the head.
- Pain usually begins gradually, and often occurs in the middle of the day
- Pain may last from 30 minutes to several days
Chronic Tension Headaches (occur more than 15 days per month)
- Pain may vary in intensity throughout the day, but the pain is almost always present
- Pain comes and goes over a prolonged period of time
Associated Symptoms of Tension Headaches include:
- Headache upon awakening
- Difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep
- Chronic fatigue
- Disturbed concentration
- Mild sensitivity to light or noise
- General muscle aching
With this type of headache, you’ll probably notice:
- Intense pain on one side of your head. People often describe it asburning, piercing, throbbing, or constant
- Pain behind or around one eye that doesn’t change sides.
- Pain lasts a short time, generally 30 to 90 minutes (but can last for three hours); the headache will disappear, only to recur later that day (most sufferers get one to three headaches and some up to eight per day during a cluster period).
- Headaches occur very regularly, generally at the same time each day, and they often awaken the person at the same time during the night.
