Millions of individuals experience headaches and migraines, but only a fraction of these people will be diagnosed and treated properly. A headache is characterized by pain in the head, upper neck and face, while migraine refers to an extremely severe head pain that can have more intense symptoms than the usual headache. Rapid Healthcare clinic offers both the diagnosis and treatment of headaches and migraines at our facility in Bolingbrook, IL.
Headaches can be caused by a wide variety of triggers. Most people experience occasional headaches which can be relieved with over-the-counter medications or conservative treatments. For those with chronic headaches, 15 or more days a month, determining the type and triggers can help identify the best treatment. Migraines are one of the types of chronic headaches, but other types include:
- Tension- these are the most common type of headache
- Hemicrania continua
- Stabbing headaches
- Chronic paroxysmal hemicranias
