Top 4 Headache That Worsens When Head Moves Causes

  1. 1.Sinus Headache

    Sinus headaches are very common. When compared to a normal headache, this pain is generally around the eyes, sinuses, and upper cheeks.

    Your sinus headache is of normal variation and can be treated at home with an over-the-counter pain reliever.

  2. 2.New Migraine

    Migraines are headaches of moderate to severe intensity, which happen when blood vessels in the brain swell up. They are episodic and thus can recur often. Most migraine sufferers experience increased sensitivity to sounds and/or lights and become nauseous and vomit.

    You can safely treat this condition on your own. Migraines are diagnosed purely by your symptoms. Medications, such as over-the-counter pain killers (e.g., ibuprofen or Tylenol) may help. However, it is important not to take them too regularly. Taking them more than two or three times a week can cause more headaches, as the body gets used to the drug, and the headache comes back when you stop taking the medication. Talk to a doctor if you have two or more migraines each month, as there are more effective treatments for preventing migraines.

    Common
    Top Symptoms:
    new headache, fatigue, nausea, mild headache, sensitivity to light
    Symptoms that always occur with new migraine:
    new headache
    Symptoms that never occur with new migraine:
