Sometimes a headache can be relatively mild, something that barely disturbs the normal course of the day whereas at other times, the worst headaches can be totally disabling.For some people, their headache problem is considerably worse than this, as they suffer an extreme form of headaches known as migraine or even the far lesser known cluster (or ‘suicide’) headaches. Migraine headaches are usually characterized by several factors in combination whereas cluster headaches are often described as the worse pain imaginable by sufferers.There is no doubt whatsoever that for someone who is a regular or chronic headache sufferer, the pain goes considerably further than simply being a little uncomfortable.In this report, you're going to read of many different ways of treating headaches entirely naturally, as well as some ideas for isolating what causes you to suffer headaches when you do so.We will also consider many of the more common medical treatments that are used to treat headaches and migraine, whilst also analyzing the side-effects of many of these treatment methods, something which might dissuade you from grabbing the pill bottle quite so quickly the next time your head is a little bit sore!And whilst there is no doubt that most people are more familiar with having a headache than they would like to be, it may come as a surprise to know that there are many different types of headaches.There are several different systems of headache classification as well.

Introduction

It would be a very rare individual indeed who has never suffered a headache at some time in their life so it follows that almost all of us are familiar with the agony of suffering a headache. Sometimes a headache can be relatively mild, something that barely disturbs the normal course of the day whereas at other times, the worst headaches can be totally disabling.

For some people, their headache problem is considerably worse than this, as they suffer an extreme form of headaches known as migraine or even the far lesser known cluster (or ‘suicide’) headaches. Migraine headaches are usually characterized by several factors in combination whereas cluster headaches are often described as the worse pain imaginable by sufferers.

There is no doubt whatsoever that for someone who is a regular or chronic headache sufferer, the pain goes considerably further than simply being a little uncomfortable.

In this report, you're going to read of many different ways of treating headaches entirely naturally, as well as some ideas for isolating what causes you to suffer headaches when you do so.

We will also consider many of the more common medical treatments that are used to treat headaches and migraine, whilst also analyzing the side-effects of many of these treatment methods, something which might dissuade you from grabbing the pill bottle quite so quickly the next time your head is a little bit sore!

And whilst there is no doubt that most people are more familiar with having a headache than they would like to be, it may come as a surprise to know that there are many different types of headaches.

There are several different systems of headache classification as well. However, it is now generally agreed that the most useful or widely accepted system of classifying headaches is that used by the International Headache Society, so it is with the IHS system of headache classification that we will begin. 5

The IHS system of classifying headaches

The earliest classification system which resembles those that are used nowadays was formulated in England by Thomas Willis is 1672.

Nowadays, the mantle of classifying headaches has been taken over by the International Headache Society who published the first edition of the International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD) in 1988, with the revised second edition appearing in 2004.

As this system of classifying headaches is accepted by the World Health Organization, it is also one that is most commonly used by medical professionals all over the world as well. The ICHD contains explicit diagnostic criteria that can be applied to various different types of headaches and uses a numerical code to classify the various different types of attack.

At the top of the classification system, there are four different types of headaches that are grouped together under the ‘primary headaches’ category. These are:

• Tension type headache (TTH);

• Migraine;

• Trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias (TAC) and cluster headaches;

• Other primary headaches including hemicrania continua and new daily persistent headache (NDPH).

Following these four primary types of headaches, there are 14 additional secondary headaches, the majority of which are conditions where the pain in the head is directly accountable to some other form of difficult to your problem. For example, headaches that result from head injury, those that are caused by an infection or by the administration or withdrawal of a particular substance or medication would all be included as secondary headaches.

The headaches that are classified as being primary are conditions where the headache concerned is not caused by any other immediately recognizable condition.

We will consider the various different causes of all of these different 6

forms of headaches over the next few chapters, where I'm also going to look at the various different types of primary headache and the different symptoms before considering the various possible causes. 7

Tension type headaches

What are they and what are the symptoms?

Tension headaches or tension type headaches as they were renamed in the first edition of the ICHD in 1998 are by far the most common form of headache, with some estimates suggesting that as high as 90% of all headaches suffered by people anywhere in the world fall into this category.

Tension type headaches are further broken down into two subcategories, episodic and chronic. The first of these would be defined as tension type headaches that occur on less than 15 days in every month, whereas any headaches that occur more regularly than this over a period of at least six months would fall into the chronic category.

With a tension type headache, the pain can radiate from the eyes, neck, back or indeed from any other muscles in the upper body. The pain is often described as being one of constant pressure, something that feels as if your head is trapped in a vice or between two bricks and it is relatively common for the pain to be felt on both sides of the head at the same time as well. This is known as suffering from bilateral pain.

Most commonly, a tension type headache is likely to range from relatively mild to moderately painful but sometimes, the pain can become severe or even extremely severe.
