Including pain in the face and brain, organs or tissues such as muscles, cerebral vessels, eyes and ears are sensitive to pain, and contractile headaches are caused by tension in the head muscles. The common manifestation of this primary headache is contraction pain in the forehead and temples on both sides, even around the shoulder and neck. Contraction headache is mainly caused by muscle fatigue. Migraine has special symptoms and etiology. It is generally believed that migraine is caused by intense contraction or dilatation of blood vessels in the brain. The common symptoms of migraine are nausea, vomiting, photophobia, fear of noise, and the location of headache usually occurs on one side, so patients are often accompanied by autonomic nerve symptoms, neurogenic headache is often accompanied by instantaneous electric shock-like headache, and the inducing point of pain is common in clinic. persistent or intermittent dull pain can be felt in areas such as the hindbrain, the top of the head, the ear, and the back neck during the attack. The pain is easy to increase when moving the head and neck, coughing, sneezing and so on.

When we encounter troubles and intractable problems in our life or work, we often use "really give people a headache" to describe our troubles, but if there is a headache, it will really make people restless and sleepless all night.

The definition of headache

We define "headache" as pain above the neck, including pain in the face and brain, which is called headache. And because the brain itself does not have a pain receiver, the brain itself does not produce pain, but because the tissue of the head, including the skin, muscles, cerebral vessels, eyes and ears and other organs or tissues are very sensitive to pain, so once they are stimulated or in an abnormal state, there will be pain.

What are the five most common headaches?

According to clinical research, there are more than 300 causes of headache alone, indicating that the causes are quite complex and can be divided into many types, such as primary and secondary headaches, as well as other facial structural pain. Mr. HEHO sorted out the five most common headaches for ordinary people to see if they were one of them.

1. Constrictive headache:

The contraction headache is caused by the tension of the head muscles. According to a large-scale foreign statistics, people from 12 to 41 years old have an 86% chance of developing contraction headaches in one year.

The common manifestation of this primary headache is contraction pain in the forehead and temples on both sides, just like wearing a Sun WuKong's golden hoop hat, even around the shoulder and neck.

Contraction headaches are mainly caused by muscle fatigue, so the pain usually begins in the afternoon and reaches its peak in the evening or evening. The cause of the attack may be excessive tension of the muscle fascia caused by stress, anxiety, or poor posture, while staying up late, smoking and drinking too much can also aggravate the pain.

Second, migraine:

Migraine is a term for a specific disease. it is a vascular primary headache with an incidence of 5% to 10%. It usually occurs in children or adolescence, but many people do not develop it until they are older. Women have three times more patients than men.

Migraine has special symptoms and causes, and local headache is not the only feature. It is generally believed that migraine is caused by intense contraction or dilatation of blood vessels in the brain. The common symptoms of migraine are nausea, vomiting, photophobia and fear of noise. the location of migraine usually occurs on one side, lasting from 2 to 72 hours, and the pain increases with physical activity.

3. Cluster headache:

Cluster headache is also a kind of vascular headache, also known as "suicide headache". It is extremely painful and is one of the most painful types of "headache". On average, it takes more than 8 years for patients to be correctly diagnosed as the cause of the disease.

The vast majority of cluster headaches are unilateral, and most often occur behind the unilateral eye socket, sometimes in the temple above the eye socket or on the same side. Some patients describe the pain in their eyes when they attack. Because the focus may be in the hypothalamus of the brain, patients are often accompanied by autonomic nerve symptoms, including red eyes, tears in one eye, runny nose, sweating on the face, pupil contraction, eyelid ptosis, facial swelling, and so on.

Fourth, neurogenic headache:

Neuropathic headache is common instant electric shock-like headache, repeated attacks, the scope of pain is related to the distribution of diseased nerves, clinical common pain induction points, touching hair or skin sometimes trigger pain.

Among them, occipital neuralgia is the most common, which refers to the occipital nerve and ear nerve coming out of the back of the neck. Persistent or intermittent dull pain can be felt in the hindbrain, top of the head, ear, back neck and other areas during the attack. The pain is easy to increase when moving the head and neck, coughing, sneezing and so on.

The second more likely to occur is trigeminal neuralgia, also known as "the first pain in the world", which can occur suddenly and the pain is severe. The trigeminal nerve root is located in front of the left and right ear. It divides into three nerve branches, connecting the forehead and the perieye, the zygomatic bone and the nose, and the lower jaw from top to bottom. Once this nerve is oppressed and the myelin sheath is damaged, it amplifies the sensory signals, turning the ordinary sense of touch into pain, such as knife cutting, acupuncture, tearing, burning or electric shock, which seriously affects work and rest.

Headaches in brain diseases:

This is due to secondary headaches caused by brain diseases such as brain tumors, stroke, ruptured brain aneurysms, or meningitis. Headaches caused by brain diseases can be signs or symptoms of serious neurological diseases, such as sudden and severe headaches that occur only in recent weeks or days, and tend to become more and more severe and persistent.

In addition, headaches caused by brain diseases can be combined with other symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, fever, neck stiffness, numbness and weakness of hands and feet, unstable walking, blurred vision or diplopia, memory loss, personality changes, or lethargy.
