Causes and Treatments for headaches

KPLR TV in St. Louis, recently spoke with Dr. Sonny Saggar, the Medical Director at St. Louis Urgent Care, about different types of headaches and what can be done about them. There are actually 150 diagnostic headache categories that have been established. Some common types of headaches include, tension headaches, migraines, cluster headaches, sinus headaches, and hormone headaches. 

Dr. Saggar tells us that headaches are hereditary and 90% of people who have migraines have other family members with migraines. Headache pain results from signals interacting between the brain, blood vessels, and surrounding nerves. During a headache, specific nerves of blood vessels and head muscles are activated and send pain signals to the brain. It's not clear why these are activated in the first place. 

Diagnosing headaches isn't always easy with so many different kinds, but the good news is that once a correct headache diagnosis is made, an effective treatment plan can be started. Once diagnosed, your doctor can recommend different types of treatment to try or may recommend further testing, or refer you to a headache specialist. When your doctor starts a treatment program, keep track of the results and how the treatment program is working.
