About Headaches and Migraines
Chronic headaches and migraines can be mild in nature or so severe that they are debilitating, which prevents individuals from living life vibrantly. Headaches can make the simplest of tasks challenging and can cause sensitivity to light and noise. There are two main types of headaches: primary and secondary. Primary headaches are typically not associated with a medical condition and are classified as tension or cluster headaches. Secondary headaches are usually caused by an injury or an underlying illness. Distinguishing between the two can be difficult, but our seasoned team at Tricity Pain Associates can help diagnose your ailment and provide a variety of treatment options. We have offices that are located all throughout the state of Texas and are proud to be serving our local communities with exceptional pain management care.

Cause of Headaches/Migraines
Primary headaches are generally caused by overactivity of the blood vessels, muscles, and nerves in the head or near the neck. In addition, they can be the result of a certain lifestyle or environmental factors, such as stress, a busy work schedule, poor sleeping habits, and aromatic sensitivity to certain perfumes or smells. Primary disorders are sometimes called tension or cluster headaches. Secondary headaches and/or migraines can be caused by a medical condition, such as a sinus infection, influenza, meningitis, blood clot, ear infection, dehydration, or concussion. Some individuals may have occasional headaches that resolve within a short period of time while others may have habitual occurrences that last for days. When you visit Tricity Pain Associates, our team will review your medical history and discuss your condition to determine a proper diagnosis.
