If you frequently struggle with headaches or migraines, you may be suffering from headache syndrome. This head pain can appear with or without pain in the neck or other parts of the head, such as the face. Head pain is chronic when it occurs 15 days or more out of a month, for longer than three months. Chronic migraines and headaches are often accompanied with the following symptoms:
Nausea and vomiting
Sensitivity to light and sound
Moderate to severe pain that interferes with daily functioning
Chronic head pain can occur naturally or after neck or head trauma. If you suffer from chronic headaches or migraines, you may be more likely to develop depression, anxiety, insomnia or other psychological or physical problems.
Dr. Isaac Tong may recommend nerve blocks, Botox or medications to treat your symptoms.
