Were you looking for information about Headaches? Headach is a common misspelling of headaches.
A headache is defined as pain or aching that occurs in the head, face, mouth, or neck. It is one of the most common symptoms experienced in society today, affecting approximately 90 percent of men and 95 percent of women at some point. It occurs when the ends of pain-sensitive nerves are stimulated by things such as stress, muscular tension, or dilated blood vessels.
There are several types of headaches, including migraine, tension, and cluster. Treatment options can include medications, lifestyle changes, and alternative treatments. In most cases, these treatments are enough to stop the pain. However, there are some serious symptoms that call for prompt medical attention. If you experience fever, convulsions, or confusion in addition to head pain, be sure to consult your healthcare provider.
