Chronic Headache Relief
CHRONIC HEADACHE RELIEF
First it's important to note that if you have a new, sudden, intense, non resolving headache, this could be a medical emergency and you need and MRI as soon as possible.
In most cases, however, headaches are an ongoing issue that can plague people throughout their lives. And they are tricky for health care providers to sort out. To find out the effective treatment, its critical to examine any patterns to your headaches and try to determine whats triggering them. One common cause of headaches or migraines, especially with women is hormonal shifts. These happen in a major way of puberty, pregnancy and menopause, but hormones also change dramatically as part of the monthly cycle during your fertile years. If your headaches are not related to hormonal changes, heat, ice or pressure will often alleviate the symptoms, and these treatments can give clues as to the origin of the headaches as well. For example if you put a wrung out hot towel over your shoulders and that relieves the headache, you likely have a tension headache from tight upper back muscles.
