There are three main categories we see in Nashville that nearly all headaches are classified:
- Tension Headaches
Tension headache sufferers have experienced pain lasting for several days each month, often occurring later in the day, leading to sleep deprivation. Pressures on the sides, top and front of the head are typical locations for these debilitating pains. Due to lost sleep and overall fatigue, sufferers also tend to have trouble with concentration, leading to missed work and decreased quality time.
- Cluster Headaches
Those suffering from Cluster Headaches have claimed the pain associated with outbreaks as being nearly unbearable. These attacks radiate waves of pain through the jaw, face, eyes and cranium. Outbreaks can last up to three hours, leaving the afflicted completely incapacitated, unable to perform even the simplest of tasks.
- Migraine Headaches
Ranging from severe to moderate, migraines often result from a chronic neurological disorder. The length of these headaches can last for several days, going into remission only to return with a vengeance. Migraines can lead to an intense pulsing sensation, with constant throbbing in one isolated area of the head.
