Headache Treatment in Brooklyn, NY
Common Kinds of Headaches
- Migraine Headaches: Migraines are different than headaches in that they have their own set of symptoms accompanied by intense headaches. Migraine symptoms include sensitivity to light, nausea, vomiting, and, in some cases, vision disturbances called auras.
- Cluster Headaches: Cluster headaches are often described as a severe, sudden pain concentrated behind one eye. Many sufferers describe the pain as feeling like an ice pick. The pain caused by cluster headaches is often so intense that patients feel the need to walk or move during an attack. Symptoms also include drooping eyes, watery eyes, and runny or stuffy nose on the side of the head as the headache.
- Tension Headaches: Tension-type headaches are the most common headache among adults and teens and produce mild to moderate pain. These headaches are not associated with any other symptoms than the headache itself.
- Sinus Headaches: Sinus headaches occur due to inflamed sinuses and feel like constant pressure in the facial region. Often, sinus headaches have other symptoms like runny or stuffy nose with yellow or green mucus.
