Headaches have been classified into categories, which are often identified by their symptoms. The most common categories are Tension Headaches, Cluster Headaches and Migraines.

What is a Tension Headache?

If you feel like your head is in a vice, you quite possibly could be suffering from a tension headache. Tension headaches, though they are the most common type of headache, they are still not greatly understood. An estimated half of the adult population experienced headaches within the past year. If your one of the more fortunate individuals the headache will come with some mild or moderate pain and then leave within minutes, hours or the same day. This is a typical, non-recurring tension headache. These headaches can be experienced at any age. But unfortunately, others have these headaches on a more frequent bases, which can interrupt their life and mood significantly.

What Causes a Tension Headache?

There are many factors believed to trigger the development of a tension headache but there is no definitive answer as to what exactly causes a tension headache. Some influences can include lack of sleep, nutrition, poor posture, eye strain, increased stress and anxiety. It is rare that tension headaches are caused by severe health issues but nevertheless if you are feeling pain on a regular bases, you owe it to yourself to see if there is a way out of what seems to be your never ending cycle of pain.

What is a Cluster Headache?

One of the most painful types of headaches are considered Cluster Headaches. These headaches take on a patters, or rhythm and usually affect one side of your head, typically surrounding your eye. These headaches commonly cause excessive tearing, redness, swelling, congested sinuses and a lot of sharp pain; the kind that can wake you out of a deep sleep in a heartbeat. The good news is that these headaches are not usually a sigh of a serious health issue, they just happen.

What Causes Cluster Headaches?

Again, the exact reason for cluster headaches is somewhat a mystery. However, cluster headaches follow patterns, some tend to follow the seasons and specific times of the year. Unlike other headaches this form doesn’t associate with stress, food or hormonal changes. Although alcohol may increase the pain of a cluster headache, it doesn’t trigger the onset of one. Men are at a higher risk, as are smokers.

What is a Migraine?

A migraine is a headache, with systems and warnings unlike tension or cluster headaches. A major difference in migraine headaches is what happens directly before and after the onset of pain. An aura may occur, tunnel vision, tingling fingers and speech impairment may all be an early or lingering sign of a migraine. These severe headaches bring on pains that can temporarily cripple an otherwise healthy adult, inducing vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound; these symptoms can last from hours to days and extreme cases can last even weeks.

What Causes Migraine Headaches?

Similar to the other classifications, we don’t understand migraines fully but for everything we don’t know, there is something we do know. Migraines seem to be genetically linked and have a variety of common triggers, which are all specific to the person experiencing the migraine. Common triggers include certain foods, medications, drinks, environmental changes and stress.
