Why do I have a headache?
While your anxiety may convince you that your headache is a sign of a serious medical condition, the large majority of headaches are not a cause for concern. There are several everyday medical conditions and lifestyle factors that can lead to a headache, such as:
- Alcohol consumption (particularly red wine)
- Poor posture
- A sinus infection
- A lack of sleep
- An ear infection
Less commonly, headaches may result from issues that impact pain-sensitive structures in the head. These are known as primary headaches. Examples of primary headaches include migraines, cluster headaches, and tension headaches.
What does headache treatment entail?
The answer to this question will depend on the headache’s root cause. At STAT MED Urgent Care, our practitioners take the time the time to carefully evaluate our patients’ symptoms, listen to their concerns and provide an appropriate course of headache treatment. A treatment plan may include medication to relieve pain or remedies to address the underlying cause of the headache, such as a sinus infection or dehydration.
