Pounding Headache

A sinus headache is usually caused by a sinus infection or congestion. It is usually localized in the front of the head with pain shooting down through the sides of the nose and cheekbones. Sometimes a decongestant with pain reliever can help relieve this type of headache.

For people who are experiencing pain or pressure on both sides of the head or back of the neck may be having a tension headache. The pain is not usually sharp or pounding, it’s more of a dull ache. While the exact cause of tension headaches Olympia is not known, it may have something to do with the contraction of the muscles in the head. If you have been under a lot of stress and have been clenching your teeth, this may be where your tension headache has come from.

Cluster headaches can come on fast with no warning. People with cluster headaches experience severe, intense headaches lasting for about 45 minutes to an hour. They usually affect only one side of the head but the pain is enough to give blurry vision or teary eyes around that side of the face. Cluster headaches Olympia may often be misdiagnosed as migraines. However, migraines usually last a lot longer than cluster headaches and can cause symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound. There are many triggers that can bring on a migraine. Certain foods, hormonal changes, smoking and even changes in the weather can cause migraine headaches. If you are experiencing a migraine, lay down in a dark, quiet room with a cool rag over your head. This, along with pain relievers may help to relieve your migraine.

Most headaches Olympia can be relieved by taking over the counter pain medications such as aspirin or ibuprofen. If you continue to have the headache and can’t get rid of it, a stronger pain reliever may be needed. This is when you should see your doctor to find out what can be done. You should also see a doctor if you continue to get headaches on a regular basis or if you get a headache that is accompanied by a high fever, as these could be signs of something more serious.
