What Happens During a Headache or Migraine?
Not all headaches and migraines are the same. A person may experience a dull soreness all over their head, or a stabbing pain in just one particular part. The pain may start and then stop relatively quickly, or it can sometimes continue for days at a time along with symptoms like nausea, blurred vision, and sensitivity to light. In general, this kind of head pain is due to the nerves, muscles, and blood vessels in the head becoming overstimulated and creating a pain response.
When Should I Get Professional Treatment for My Headaches/Migraines?
If your headaches/migraines are interfering with your life either at home or the office, it’s definitely time to talk to a professional. Are you missing out on quality time with your family because your head hurts? Have you missed many days of work because of migraines? Do you begin to feel anxious when your head hurts because you don’t know when it will stop? If so, then you should definitely seek out help from a qualified doctor.
Can You Help Stop My Headaches/Migraines?
One common but underdiagnosed source of chronic head pain is TMD, or temporomandibular joint disorder. This refers to an imbalance in the temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, which is your jaw joint. This can lead to muscle pain in tension within the jaw that eventually affects the nearby muscles in the head, leading to persistent headaches and migraines.
At Orofacial Pain Associates, we’re experts at diagnosing and treating this kind of problem using proven, non-invasive methods. If you haven’t been checked for TMD before and experience headaches/migraines at least a few times a month, be sure to contact our office for a consultation.
