Types of Headaches

There’s actually a magnitude of different types of headaches, and with myself, I’m all about root cause and mechanism. So, the patient could be suffering from a migraine, and that’s going to be ischemia to the brain, being a lack of oxygen. It could be a hormonal headache, a lot of women that are in their reproductive years, they do suffer from hormonal headaches. You could have a cluster headache, you could have a muscular tension-like headache, if you haven’t eaten you could also deal with a hypoglycemic-type headache. There are various headaches out there that I love helping people with.
