Headache and migraines.
Headaches are quite common with most people experiencing some type of headache in their life time.
I will be outlining 3 signs associated with headaches that you should not ignore.
Firstly, I should say headaches due to life threatening conditions such as meningitis, encephalitis, cerebral aneurysms, extremely high blood pressure and brain tumors are rare.
The 3 signs that you are not to ignore are:
- Sudden severe onset head ache, often with vomiting. This is an alarming sign because it comes on quickly and the there is no reason for it.
- Headache with extreme pain on flexing your neck and an associated fever. The association of the neck pain and fever indicate a possible meninges inflammation.
- Any head ache following a head clash or knock. This one be concussion through to a brain blood vessel trauma.
With any of these signs DO NOT WAIT AND SEE. These need immediate attention and evaluation to eliminate anything nasty.
While these need immediate attention your standard type headache is actually also a sign that something is not right.
All headaches and migraines have a cause.
Research published in the European Journal of Neurology in September 2016 found that Migraine symptoms were substantially reduced as a result of chiropractic treatment.
So headaches are not ‘normal’ and you don’t have to live with them. A chiropractor is well placed to help.
Why not have your headache checked out by a professional and get to the underlying cause naturally.
Because your health is worth it.
