Common Types of Headaches and Headache Disorders

Recognizing the different types of headache disorders is crucial for patients to receive effective treatments. Understanding these types is the first step toward finding effective relief and treatment for patients. At the Richardson, TX, Headache and Migraine Center, our neurology and pain management team specializes in diagnostic testing and treating headaches of all kinds, ensuring our patients receive the patient care best suited to their specific needs.

At the Richardson, TX, Migraine and Headache Center, we are dedicated to understanding and treating this complex condition, helping our patients find relief, and improving their overall health.

Post Traumatic Headaches

Typically caused by a traumatic accident or injury such as a concussion. Post-traumatic headaches can cause pulsing pain and gastrointestinal distress or can feel similar to tension headaches.

Migraines

Typically presents as a pulsating or throbbing pain on one side of the head. Accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. Having an underlying condition such as multiple sclerosis, trigeminal neuralgia (severe facial pain), epilepsy, cardiovascular disease, and even fibromyalgia can trigger severe migraine headaches.

Cluster Headaches

Known for their severe pain, cluster headaches occur in cyclical patterns or clusters. A cluster headache is often very short in duration but extremely painful, typically affecting one side of the head, often around the eye.

Sinus Headaches

Associated with sinus infections and are characterized by deep, constant pain in the cheekbones, forehead, or bridge of the nose.

Rebound Headaches

Caused by the overuse of headache medicine.

Tension Headaches

Characterized by a dull, aching pain, often described as a tight band around the head.

Migraine Symptoms

Migraine headaches are broken up into four main phases – prodrome, aura, attack, and postdrome – with different effects accompanying each phase. 

Recognizing these symptoms can be crucial for early intervention and effective management of the migraine. Common prodrome symptoms include:

  • Mood Changes
  • Food Cravings
  • Neck Stiffness or Neck Discomfort
  • Increased Thirst and Urination
  • Yawning and Fatigue
  • Sensitivity to Light and Sound
  • Digestive Issues

Occurring before or during the migraine attack, aura symptoms typically last between 20 minutes to an hour. Common aura symptoms include:

  • Vision Disturbances
  • Sensory Changes or Numbness
  • Speech Disturbances
  • Motor Weakness
  • Auditory Hallucinations
  • Brainstem Aura or Double Vision

This is what most people identify as the actual migraine headache. This phase presents a range of debilitating symptoms. Typical symptoms experienced include:

  • Headache Pain
  • Discomfort or Sensitivity to Light and Sound
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Blurred Vision
  • Lightheadedness or Dizziness
  • Extreme Fatigue

The postdrome phase, often referred to as the ‘migraine hangover,’ occurs after the headache phase has subsided. Common postdrome symptoms include:

  • Fatigue
  • Cognitive Difficulties
  • Mood Changes
  • Physical Weakness
  • Sensitivity
  • Digestive Issues

Treating Headaches and Migraines

At our Richardson, TX, Migraine and Headache Center, we carefully evaluate each patient’s symptoms and medical history to create a personalized treatment plan. Our physicians use the latest and greatest headache medicine and therapy to treat patients and improve their quality of life. The most common and effective treatment options for migraines are abortive medications, preventative medications, and pain medications.

Abortive Migraine Treatment

Abortive medications are most effective when taken at the first sign of migraine symptoms, aiming to alleviate the symptoms and prevent the progression of the migraine.

Preventative Migraine Treatment

These types of headache medicine are taken regularly to reduce the frequency, severity, and duration of migraine attacks.

Pain Medications

These medicines are designed to alleviate migraine symptoms and provide relief during migraine episodes.

When to See a Neurologist for Migraine Headaches

Knowing when to consult a doctor about headaches or migraines is crucial for effective management and treatment. It’s important to seek professional migraine care in the following situations:

  • Frequent or Severe Headaches: If you experience headaches more often, particularly if they disrupt your daily activities or require medication more than twice a week.
  • Changes in Headache Patterns: Any noticeable changes in the characteristics, frequency, or severity of your headaches.
  • Intense Symptoms: Headaches that are severely painful should be checked out by our headache specialists.
  • Neurological Symptoms: Accompanying symptoms such as confusion, seizures, double vision, weakness, numbness, or difficulty speaking definitely warrant a trip to the neurologist.
  • After a Head Injury: You should always consult with a neurologist if you’re experiencing headaches that develop after a traumatic brain injury.
  • Other Health Issues: Headaches accompanied by fever, stiff neck, rash, dizziness, shortness of breath, or chest pain should always be checked out by a doctor.
  • Lack of Response to Medications: If your usual headache medicine no longer seems effective, it’s time to seek further migraine care.
  • Impact on Quality of Life: When headaches start to affect your quality of life, work, or sleep, it’s important to seek medical treatment options.

At the Richardson, TX, Headache and Migraine Center, we encourage individuals experiencing these signs to schedule a consultation. Our team of specialists is equipped to diagnose the underlying causes of your headaches or migraines and develop a personalized treatment plan to effectively manage your condition.
