Headache is pain in any region of the head. Headaches may occur on one or both sides of the head, be isolated to a certain location, radiate across the head from one point, or have a viselike quality. A headache may appear as a sharp pain, a throbbing sensation, or a dull ache. Tension headaches, also known as Stress headaches, are often felt all over the head, yet they usually start at the forehead before moving around to the back of the head and neck. Sinus headaches are caused by acute sinusitis and create pain over the forehead, around the nose and eyes, over the cheeks, or in the upper teeth.
A migraine headache is a type of headache that can cause intense pain, throbbing sensation, and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines can be triggered by various factors, such as stress, hormonal changes, food, or weather.
Cervical vertigo, or cervicogenic dizziness, is a neck-related dizziness that occurs after moving your neck and can also affect your sense of balance and concentration.
Suboccipital trigger points cause dull achy pain from the back of the head that can travel from behind the ear up towards the eye. Temporalis Trigger Points cause tenderness on the side of the head, jaw pain and toothache.
TMJD can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement. Popping, clicking and pain may be felt with chewing.
Sinus pressure might feel like tightness or achiness in your face, particularly around your eyes, nose, forehead, or cheekbones. Sinus pressure can even radiate to other areas, like your scalp, teeth, and jaws.
Muscles often develop tight spots called myofascial trigger points that don’t relax on their own. Trigger point pain is an extremely prevalent cause of persistent pain disorders in all parts of the body, not just the head, neck, and face.
