What Causes Headaches and Migraines

Have you ever add the feel like your head is a big construction site where some one is using a jack hammer in the back of your neck just chipping away at any sense of peace of mind that you might have left?  and then its like some one else inside your head buzzing away with a power drill trying to break your head wide open? 

If you had any thing like that then you are probably just like I was before i put a stop to the construction work that was constantly under way some it even seems like it would just go on for ever none stop well i just couldn't take it any more because the regular over the counter headache medication just couldn't help me.

I went on a desperate search trying to find a solution and what i found out was Just about everyone in the world has had at least one headache. Some people rarely get them, while others have them almost every day like I did. Often we pay little attention to them, and the headache is soon gone, but sometimes headaches become so painful or so frequent that we start to worry that it might be something more serious medical issue.

In my quest I found out that A headache is a pain sensed in the nerves and muscles of the head and neck, as well as the meninges (the membranous coverings of the brain and spinal cord). Your brain itself cannot sense pain, so a headache has nothing to do with your brain hurting. It is really a pain somewhere around your brain, being picked up by nerve endings located in your head.

This simply mean that it is fixable but only if you learn the natural proven ways of how to eliminate these constant pounding or buzzing that keeps rearing its ugly head and steals the life out of your day.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) Headaches are one of the most common medical complaints -- nearly everyone gets a headache at some point. Over 45 million Americans (about one in six) suffer chronic headaches each year. Headaches therefore have a big economic impact -- when you have a throbbing pain in your head, it's hard to work. The cost of these headaches in absenteeism and medical expenses is estimated as high as $50 billion per year.

It is reported that in developed countries, Tension Type Headache (TTH) alone affects two-thirds of adult males and over 80% of females. Extrapolation from figures for migraine prevalence and attack incidence suggests that 3000 migraine attacks occur every day for each million of the general population. Less well recognized is the toll of chronic daily headache: up to one adult in 20 has a headache every or nearly every day.

Not only is headache painful, but headache disorders are also disabling. Worldwide, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), migraine alone is 19th among all causes of years lived with disability (YLDs). Headache disorders impose recognizable burden on sufferers including sometimes substantial personal suffering, impaired quality of life and financial cost. Repeated headache attacks, and often the constant fear of the next one, damage family life, social life and employment. For example, social activity and work capacity are reduced in almost all migraine sufferers and in 60% of TTH sufferers.

There are two main reasons why people get headaches, and medical professionals therefore classify headaches into two broad categories: primary and secondary.

Primary headaches are not associated with any underlying medical condition. But  Secondary headaches are associated with medical conditions like infections, fever, head injury, hypoglycemia, tumors, dental conditions or increased pressure in the skull and/or sinuses (sinus headaches).

A careful study would show that there are three main causes for primary headaches.
Headaches itself is a painful and often disabling conditions that often steals the joy out of a beautiful day, stalls progress and even kills the romance in a wonderful relationship trust me I know.

The good news about headaches is that the majority of them are completely harmless. However, every once in a while a headache is a warning of something serious, so how can you tell the difference?

Well I have discover some thing that as work for me and people that I have come in contact with that as used this all natural, step-by-step guide to eradicate headaches effectively.
I am not going to pretend to be a medical professional but if this work for me i know it can help some people like my self who as not suffered as much as I did it got rid of the construction site and gave me a chance to enjoy my days with my family and the great part is every is now happy that they don't have to be tip toeing around the house like they are walking on egg shells any more.
