This Is What Your Headache Is Trying To Tell You, Say Doctors

Headaches are very common, and are usually harmless and go away on their own. However, sometimes these headaches can be a sign of something more serious. Here are some things to keep in mind the next time you have a headache that has these symptoms.

1All American Health Care

The most common types of headaches are tension headaches, a sinus headache or a migraine. People with these headaches usually experience a dull pain that builds slowly, but tends to go away after some time.

While the common headache is usually harmless, in some cases a headache can be a sign of a stroke, an aneurysm, a brain tumor, or bleeding in the brain. In very rare cases, they can mean that your arteries and veins are not connected correctly.

If your headache is all of a sudden and the pain is unbearable, it’s called a ‘thunderclap headache.’ They usually are the most painful after 60 seconds, and often are a sign of bleeding in the brain, and can be very serious.

If you get a headache after exercise or any other physical activity it could be a symptom of a brain tumor or an aneurysm. Serious headaches can cause slurred speech and blurred vision. They may also cause trouble balancing, confusion or memory loss. These are also signs of a stroke.

3All Treatment

If you are experiencing headaches when you are over the age of 55, talk to your doctor. Also, if you have had a head injury and get a headache it could lead to concussion or brain damage if not treated immediately.

If your headache is happening around one eye that is called a cluster headache. If the eye goes red, it could be a sign of a brain tumor or aneurysm. Cluster headaches can cause nausea and vomiting. But if you have a fever or stiff neck it could be meningitis. See a doctor if your headache worsens after 24 hours, and if you have a history of cancer watch out if you experience a new kind of headache.
