Is your headache a migraine?
Over 26 million Americans suffer from migraines, and more than half go undiagnosed. Thankfully, there has been enormous progress made in the treatment of headache disorders, especially migraine. New diagnostic and therapeutic techniques have revolutionized what were once thought to be frustrating or hopeless conditions. Neuroscientists have linked migraine to an imbalance of a brain chemical called serotonin. These findings have led to targeted research, resulting in treatments that reduce the severity and frequency of migraine headaches.

Other types of headaches
Dr. Pappas and the Neuro Spinal & Headache Center of Southeast Georgia provide diagnoses and treatment plans for all types of headaches.

Migraine: Moderate to severe pain for 4 to 72 hours, inhibiting or prohibiting activity due to throbbing, intense pressure aggravated by activity. The two types are common (without aura) and classic (with aura).

Tension: Mild to moderate pain lasting for weeks or months, inhibiting, but not prohibiting, activity due to squeezing, pressing, aching pain.

Cluster: Severe pain for 30 minutes to 2 hours, generally in or around the eye, prohibiting activity due to excruciating, boring, penetrating pain.

Injury-related: Symptoms vary depending on the injury.

Sinus: Pain in forehead and around the eyes. Worse upon awakening and increased with forward bending.

Tumor: Symptoms vary depending on location or type. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial.
