Headaches can take many forms and may be triggered by a variety of factors. Tension headaches and migraines are examples of primary headaches, whereas secondary headaches are caused by an underlying condition that could be serious, such as meningitis or an aneurysm. Primary headaches are far more common than secondary headaches and may cause the following symptoms:
- Tension headaches – pressure or throbbing that encircles the head; pain may feel worse on your forehead right above the eyebrows, and usually affects both sides of the head.
- Migraines – an intense pain that is usually confined to one side of the head; often associated with nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light.
Primary headache treatment is available at South Tampa Immediate Care if you are suffering from any of the above symptoms. However, in the event that you experience a secondary headache that could be the symptom of a life-threatening condition, go directly to the emergency room. If your headache is extremely severe, is accompanied by a stiff neck and fever, or is causing you to have difficulty speaking or walking, emergency care is required. As a general rule of thumb, seek headache treatment at the ER if the headache is far worse than any other headache you’ve ever experienced.
