There are various types of headaches:
Symptoms: A dull, steady pain
that feels like a band tightening around your head
Tension headaches usually bring on neck and muscle discomfort
Symptoms: A nonthrobbing pain around one red, watery eye
, with nasal congestion
on that side of your face
Cluster headaches come in groups over a set period of time. Nasal congestion and a flushed face may accompany the headache. Men
suffer from this kind of headache more than women
Symptoms: Throbbing, begins on one side, and causes nausea
or sound or light sensitivity. Visual disturbances
, such as flickering points of light, may precede the headache.
Before many migraines, the victim will experience an aura
(a warning of the migraine coming). The victim may also experience nausea
Symptoms: A steady pain in the area behind your face that gets worse if you bend forward and is accompanied by congestion
These headaches are caused by inflammation
of the membrane
s lining the sinus cavities.
