Headache Relief Q & A

What are the different types of headaches?

There are more than 150 types of headaches. Some of the most common headache types include:

Tension headaches

Tension headaches usually start slowly, causing dull pain on both sides of your head. Some people also have pain in their neck and in the back part of the skull. 

Migraine headaches

Migraine headaches cause throbbing pain, and they may also cause nausea, vomiting, light sensitivity, and other issues. This type of headache can last for hours or even days in some cases. 

Cluster headaches

Cluster headaches usually start suddenly and cause severe pain behind one eye. This type of headache happens in cluster periods. You’ll commonly have headaches daily for several weeks or longer, followed by periods with no headaches. 

Some headaches can share symptoms. For example, migraines and cluster headaches can have similar symptoms, so you need a professional diagnosis to find out what you’re dealing with. 

When do I need headache relief?

There are a number of signs that it’s time to seek headache relief at Wellness and Surgery, including:

  • Increased headache intensity
  • Increased headache frequency
  • Headaches disrupt work or other parts of your life
  • Headaches interrupt your sleep
  • Pain doesn’t respond to over-the-counter medication

 

Everyone has a headache at some point — but if headaches are a long-standing problem or a sudden severe issue, they’re not harmless minor headaches. Don’t wait to see a board-certified neurologist at Wellness and Surgery to find solutions.

What are the treatments for headache relief?

There’s a very long list of headache treatments available today, and your specific treatment depends on the kind of headache, your overall health, and other aspects of your situation. 

Wellness and Surgery offers a variety of on-site treatments, including Botox® injections, nerve blocks, and lifestyle management. These treatments can greatly reduce headache frequency and intensity.

For acute headaches, intravenous (IV) therapy can potentially offer immediate relief because the vitamins and nutrients enter your bloodstream instantly. This bypasses the digestion process, saving a lot of precious time in waiting for relief when you’re hurting. IV therapy can also include medications that work very quickly. 

Most insurance providers cover headache treatment, so reach out to Wellness and Surgery by phone or through online booking now.
