Tension Headaches

The most common headache is the tension headache. Common effects of a tension headache are: pressure or tightening in the head, bilateral location, pain that spans from 30 minutes to a week. Tension headaches can involve light or sound sensitivity. Tension headaches are not usually related to another health disorder.

Migraine Headaches

Less common, migraine headaches can be mistaken for something else. Frequently, people will mistake their pain for a migraine; however, a migraine is a recurrent headache lasting up to 72 hours which involves unilateral constant pain of mild to severe. In addition, migraines may cause nausea and light sensitivity, and is made worse through any physical activity.

An estimated 20 percent of migraine sufferers will see an aura, a neurological symptom that takes the form of a visual or sensory disruption, which can also occur between migraine instances. Migraines are often not related to other health problems.

Cluster Headaches

Uncommon, affecting less than 1 percent of the population, cluster headaches are very different from the other types of headaches. The typical sufferer of a cluster headache is a man between the ages of 20 and 40, which is contrary to women who more frequently experience migraines. Symptoms from this kind of headache include severe pain near the eyes or sides of the head which can last 15 minutes to 3 hours and occur 8 times a day. Crying, sweat coming from the forehead and sinus congestion are other common characteristics of cluster headaches. During an attack, sufferers can appear restless or angry from the severity of the pain.
