Can Headaches Be Serious?

There are two main types of headache that can cause alarm:

  • Migraines – which often result in nausea and sensitivity to light and sound
  • Tension headaches – this occurs with pain on both sides of the head and may be associated with muscle pain

Migraines and tension headaches can cause a disruption to day-to-day activities and they may also be the signs of an underlying condition. When the headaches become strong and interfere with your daily routine such as disrupting vision, bodily functions, and increased pain and sensation elsewhere in the body, or mood or personality changes, you should seek professional care to get a proper diagnosis.
