It is unusual not to experience headaches on occasion. According to several large studies, 80 to 90% of the general population has experienced at least one headache in the previous year. When we say it’s a symptom, we mean that it’s not a disease in and of itself, but rather a change in the body that can be a sign of a problem in some cases.
Tension-type headaches are the most common type of headache, accounting for nearly 90% of all headaches. About 3% of the population suffers from chronic tension-type headaches. Stress and anxiety are the most common causes of tension headaches.
Migraine is a chronic health condition. The majority of migraine sufferers experience severe headaches. A migraine headache is characterised by a severe, throbbing pain on one or both sides of the head. Migraine headaches are most commonly felt in the temples or behind one eye or ear, but they can affect any part of the head. Migraines can cause nausea, vomiting, and light and sound sensitivity, in addition to pain. Some people may also experience vision loss or see spots or flashing lights.
Migraine can strike at any time of day, but it is most common in the morning.
The discomfort can last anywhere from a few hours to 72 hours. Migraines strike some people once or twice a week. Some only come once or twice a year. Migraines are rarely harmful to your overall health, but they can significantly reduce your quality of life.
Low serotonin levels in the brain are thought to cause a process of blood vessel constriction and dilation, which can cause a migraine.
By reducing stress and teaching you how to increase your serotonin levels, hypnotherapy can be helpful in the treatment of headaches and migraines.
