Headaches are a common condition that affect millions of people in the United States. Whether it’s a tension headache from stress or a migraine caused by changes in the weather, headaches can greatly impact a person’s daily life. In fact, according to the National Headache Foundation, it is estimated that nearly 90% of all adults will experience a headache at some point in their lives. Let’s take a look at some of the different types of headaches and their common presentations!

  • Cervicogenic headaches are caused by problems in the neck and can cause referred pain to the head. These types of headaches are often misdiagnosed as tension headaches or migraines.
  • Tension type headaches are caused by tightness and contractions in the muscles of the neck, scalp, and jaw. These types of headaches are often associated with stress.
  • Cluster headaches are intense, one-sided headaches that often occur in clusters and can be very debilitating. They are often misdiagnosed as migraines or sinus headaches.
  • Migraines are often accompanied by symptoms such as nausea, light sensitivity, and vision changes.
