Severe Headaches

Many Americans suffer from chronic headaches worldwide. While there are many ways to describe a severe headache, many describe the overwhelming feeling the same. A moderate-to-severe pain (often described as a pounding, throbbing pain) that originates from one side of the head, neck, or scalp. At times, the pain can be debilitating. Don’t let your suffering go undiagnosed or under-treated. Seek medical care as soon as you notice severe or persistent headache symptoms.

Severe Headaches Features

Generalized Pain

Primary headaches don’t point to any underlying conditions. Instead, they are often triggered by stress, poor-posture, over-exertion, or dysfunction with the pain-sensitive nerves in your skull. These headaches include:

  • Thunderclap Headaches: a sudden and excruciating headache that comes on as fast as a clap of thunder
  • Rebound Headaches: headaches caused by the regular, long-term use of pain medications to treat headaches
  • Sinus Headaches: headaches caused by inflammation of the sinus cavity
  • Spinal Headaches: occurs when the cerebrospinal fluid that cushions the brain leaks out of the meninges

Occasional headaches are common, and usually don’t require medical attention. However, for recurring severe headache symptoms, it is always best to visit a doctor for guidance and treatment.

Primary Headaches

A headache is secondary when another condition causes it. Many factors can trigger secondary headaches, such as:

  • A medical condition like high blood pressure
  • Infections, like a sinus infection
  • Brain injury, like a concussion
  • Blood vessel problems due to a stroke or brain aneurysm

In such cases, a physical examination should be conducted by a doctor to look for warning signs that could point to a secondary headache.

Consult Your Doctor If:

  • Your headache pain increases or jolts you awake, visit the closest emergency room as soon as possible.
  • You take pain relievers almost daily
  • You notice a sudden change in headache patterns
  • Your headaches are extremely painful or debilitating
