Types of Headaches We Treat
If you or a loved one experiences a sudden, severe headache accompanied by fever or dizziness, slurred speech, and vision problems, or if you have pain after a head injury, you should head to the emergency room. For many other types of headaches, though, the physician-led team at Ouch Urgent Care can provide effective treatment faster and more affordably than the ER. Here are a few of the types of headaches we treat:
These headaches are characterized by pain and throbbing on one side of the head as well as hyper-sensitivity to light and sound.
This type of headache is a symptom of sinusitis, which refers to swelling of the sinus tissue, usually during a respiratory illness. Patients experiencing a sinus headache are also likely to have a stuffy nose, a sensation of pressure in the upper facial area, and possibly pain in the upper teeth.
As the name implies, a cluster headache refers to multiple instances of pain that occur several times a day, usually around the same time each day. Each headache can last a few minutes or a few hours, and the pattern can continue for months.
The experienced medical practitioners at Ouch Urgent Care can evaluate your symptoms and provide you with the most appropriate headache treatment for you.
