CHRONIC DAILY HEADACHE
Most people have headaches from time to time. But if you have a headache more days than not, you might have chronic daily headaches. Rather than a specific headache type, chronic daily headaches include a variety of headache subtypes. Chronic refers to how often the headaches occur and how long the condition lasts.
The constant nature of chronic daily headaches makes them one of the most disabling headache conditions. Aggressive initial treatment and steady, long-term management might reduce pain and lead to fewer headaches.
By definition, chronic daily headaches occur 15 days or more a month, for longer than three months.
- Chronic migraine
- Chronic tension-type headache
Tension headaches are the most common type of headache. Stress and tight muscles are often factors in tension-type headaches.
These are common symptoms of a tension-type headache
- Slow onset of the headache
- Head usually hurts on both sides
- Pain is dull or feels like a band or vice around the head
- Pain may involve the back part of the head or neck
- Pain is mild to moderate, but not severe
- Tension-type headaches typically do not cause nausea, vomiting, or sensitivity to light (photophobia).
These are the most common symptoms of a cluster headache:
- Severe pain on one side of the head, usually behind one eye
- The eye that is affected may be red and watery with a droopy lid and small pupil
- Swelling of the eyelid
- Runny nose or congestion
- Swelling of the forehead
