What are your headache symptoms? Headache symptoms can often be confusing and many times there are overlapping symptoms for different types. For instance, both tension and migraine can present
with photophobia, or aversion to light. They can also both have nausea and fatigue.
Another common mistake is to confuse sinus headache symptoms with those of migraine. Why? Because almost 40% of all migraine
occurs around the nose and as a result is often mistaken for "sinus".
Too often, many new patients will come to me complaining of pain at the back of the head which is throbbing and "grabbing". This is a form of
neck pain called cervicogenic headache.
Episodic headaches are those that occur less than 15 days per month, if over 15 days per month the headaches are considered chronic. This applies to all types
of head pain including tension, cluster, migraine, neuralgias and all headaches in general.
