Suffer From Frequent Headaches? Here’s What May Be Going On…

If you suffer from headaches and migraines — even sinus headaches — you know that they can throw your day-to-day activities off track. It’s normal for these types of headaches to come and go. It’s NOT normal, however, if they are chronic. Frequent headaches and migraines are not only debilitating, they could be signs of something more serious.

Here are some potentially dangerous health issues your frequent headaches and migraines could be indicating:

1. High blood pressure.

While high blood pressure shows no symptoms, a sudden severe headache could be indicative of blood pressure that is abnormally high. The normal blood pressure level is considered to be below 140/90. For someone with hypertension, blood pressure would be anywhere above 180/120. This condition develops rapidly and can trigger frequent headaches.

2. A severe stroke.

Like high blood pressure, a stroke can be accompanied by a major headache. A stroke happens when blood circulation to the brain is affected. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, one sign of stroke is a severe headache with no obvious cause.

3. Repercussions of a head injury.

A headache after a headache injury is a matter of concern — especially if it repeats itself. Pain following an accident or injury could mean a fracture or rupture of blood vessels in the skull or brain.

4. Dental or bite force problems or trauma.

Dental fillings and crowns inside your mouth wear at different rates and can cause improper alignment of the teeth, forcing the muscles and tendons to work harder to compensate for any imbalances. This, in turn, can cause chronic headaches and migraines. Frequent head pain may also develop due to poor adaptation to completed dental work, or orthodontic changes. Wisdom teeth extraction can also be a potential source of headaches.

If you suffer from chronic headaches and migraines, it’s important you see a pain management professional for an immediate consultation. Pain treatment, like TruDenta® therapy offered here at Pasadena Pain Management, can provide last relief depending on the source of your migraines.
