Frequent Headaches: Causes and cure

Headaches are one of the most common ailments of contemporary times affecting thousands of individuals on a daily basis. Frequent headaches are those headaches that tend to occur repeatedly and can be quite a nuisance.

Frequent headaches are divided into two categories:

Primary headaches: These types of headaches do not have any underlying disorders and respond to general medication as well as alternative therapies.

Secondary Headaches: These headaches usually have an underlying ailment that can be of mild or serious nature such as sinusitis, brain tumor, hormonal imbalance, hypertension etc. These headaches can be quite chronic and may require special treatment.

The most common reasons as to why a person experiences frequent headache are:

  • Viral infection
  • Sinus infection
  • Tension and stress

Causes and cure of frequent headaches:

Sinusitis: Sinuses are air filled cavities located in the head that join the nose and head. When the sinuses get blocked due to an allergic reaction, cold or weather changes an individual tends to develop a headache. Sinus headache is dull and profound in nature and affects the area behind the eyes, forehead, behind the ears, cheekbones and nose. This type of headache can be treated by taking steam inhalation, general painkillers such as aspirin, ibuprofen or acetaminophen and rest. If the headache continues to persist, you must visit a doctor.

Meningitis: This is a neurological disorder in which the membrane surrounding the brain gets infected due to a viral or bacterial infection and gets inflamed. It is a fatal disorder and results in chronic headache. The patient must be hospitalized and treated immediately.

Fever: During high fever, the blood vessels of the whole body including the head and brain get dilated resulting in headache. When the fever is brought down, the headache fades away automatically. Certain medications such as paracetamol and ibuprofen are administered to treat fever headache. You should see a doctor in this case as you might need to take antibiotics to fight the infection.

Migraine: Individuals suffering from migraine are prone to experiencing frequent headaches. Migraine pain is unilateral in nature and affects one side of the head. A migraine attack is accompanied by pulsating pain that is severe in intensity, nausea, vomiting, dizziness and increased sensitivity to light, sound and smell.
