When to See a Doctor

Headaches can result from a minor issue, such as lack of sleep, dehydration, or hunger. However, if you experience frequent headaches or those accompanied by debilitating pain, it could signify a more significant health issue or a condition that would benefit from medical treatment. Dr. LeDoux sees patients with problems from headaches and migraines that:

  • Don’t improve with over-the-counter pain medication
  • Occur more frequently than normal
  • Prevent them from going to school or work
  • Cause severe pain
  • Cause distress or depression

Not All Headaches Are the Same

Primary headaches are caused by inflammation of pain-sensitive body parts in the head and neck, such as the muscles, nerves, and blood vessels. Primary headaches include:

Migraine Headaches

Migraines are usually on one side of the head, can last for hours at a time, and often come with nausea and vomiting.

Tension Headaches

It might feel like you have a tight band wrapped around the back of your head and temples with a tension headache.

Cluster Headaches

Short headaches that come and go throughout the day are cluster headaches and can cause tearing or stuffy noses.

Hypnic Headaches

These are rare but only occur at night, usually around the same time, and affect the whole head.
