Headaches

Headaches

Headaches have been experienced by almost everyone at some point in their lives. For example, up to 90% of adults have reported experiencing tension headaches, and 28 million people in the US alone have had a migraine. There are currently 150 different categories of headaches that vary in intensity, cause, and cure.

Headache Symptoms

Here are just a few of the countless symptoms associated with some of the most common headache types:

  • Mild pain, tightness, or pressure
  • Intense throbbing, pounding, or pulsating
  • Pain triggered by specific factors such as stress, disrupted sleep patterns, or even certain types of foods.
  • Vision disturbances
  • Severe pain behind one of the eyes that occurs at least twice a day for 30 to 90 minutes at a time.

Headache Causes

Chronic headaches and migraines can both be the result of hormonal imbalance. Imbalanced hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and cortisol can lead to painful headaches.

In addition to hormonal imbalance there are a number of other factors that can lead to headaches:

  • Sinus pressure
  • Muscle spasms
  • Abnormal brain activity
  • Unusual activity in the hypothalamus.
  • Injuries
  • Inflammation
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Stress
  • Micronutrient deficiencies

Treatment

Headaches caused by hormonal imbalance are treatable with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT.

For non-hormonal chronic headaches, your doctor may recommend:

  • Lifestyle changes
  • Antidepressants
  • Blood pressure or seizure medications
  • Oxygen
  • Botox
  • Lidocaine injections
  • Nausea medicines or sedatives for treating individual symptoms
