What Causes Headache? Help is here at Headache Adviser.
Wondering what causes headache? If you have migraines or chronic daily headache you have come to the right place. In pain right now? Read on..
If you tired of trying to figure out what causes headache,...RELAX..I am here to help you. Not only have I suffered for years from migraines, but I am also a healthcare professional, who practices headache medicine. I practice in neurology and see hundreds of headache patients per month. I have lectured nationally on the subject of headache.
The first time I was hit with a migraine was so memorable. I was in high school and enrolled in an advanced chemistry course. The stress was high, the pressure was on to perform at a level I had never known before.
Then BAM! One day in class, right before an exam, my head felt like it was going to blow up. One side was throbbing with horrible pain, I felt like throwing up and wished everyone would leave me alone...
At that time, there was no information or treatment for teens with migraine. Basically I was told.."Well it is JUST a headache." I am sure many of you have heard this before when trying to describe your migraine headache symptoms.
As a result, like many others, I did not receive adequate treatment for years...30 of them as a matter of fact. But now that has changed, I practice as a specialist in this area, and believe that chronic daily headaches can be managed. Yes..they can, I have done it.
See? You are not the only one with horrible pain. Most victims are women and many of us suffer in silence.
While there is no quick cure, there IS management for what causes headaches.
Migraine And Other Headaches
Although the most common headache is tension headache, the majority of these are mild and do not cause a person to
seek advice from a medical professional. The most common headache that is severe enough to require treatment is migraine. Most of
you who are searching for information on "what causes headache" through the internet are migraineurs.

|"Tonight I had a headache that I've had for over 12 hours. I lay in bed all day and still it did not go away. It was one of those that I know from past experience would turn into a migraine if I aggravated it at all. So I clicked over to your site and started reading. On the Holistic Treatment page, I read your recommendation for magnesium. So I went to my cupboard and found a multivitamin with magnesium in it and took 3 and 2 Aleves. That was maybe an hour or so ago, and I just noticed that my headache pain is receding. It's still lurking in the back of my head wanting to rear its ugly head again, but it is no longer in the forefront tearing my eyes out. Thanks for the advice, and I wanted to say that your site is lovely."
When I said 'Thank You', I meant it from the bottom of my heart. You have given me back my life. I will pay it forward..forever in your debt."
