What is a Headache? A Migraine?

While everyone has experienced a headache or migraine at one point or another in their lives, most people don’t know the scientific reasons behind these frustrating and even debilitating phenomenons. While the brain lacks pain receptors of its own, surrounding arteries, blood vessels, nerves and other components of the head and neck have ample pain receptors. Headaches are often caused by irritiation to the meninges and blood vessels enveloping the brain, while migraines are believed to be primarily an issue of nerve dysfunction.

Headaches and migraines can prevent you from fully enjoying the things and people you love. Headaches and migraines cause you throbbing pain and daily distraction. They can even cause lightheadedness, nausea, and blurred vision. They slow you down when it is inconvenient, sometimes forcing you to leave work or other events. There are dozens of potential causes of headaches and migraines, but the effects of these hindering health problems are the same.

Just a few more common causes of headaches include:

  • Stress
  • Influenza, cold, or other sicknesses
  • Dehydration
  • Ear infection
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • TMJ disorders
  • Causes of Migraines
  • Sensory stimuli
  • Hormonal changes
  • Stress
  • Medications
  • Food or drink
  • TMJ disorders

Headaches, Migraines, and TMJ Disorders

TMJ disorders are frequently ignored or missed during discussions of headaches and migraines, leaving the cause of the patient’s symptoms misdiagnosed and the suffering patient unable to find true relief. TMD is a kind of jaw inflammation that causes jaw pain that is often mistaken for tension headaches. When treated as headaches, the cause of the symptoms isn’t addressed, and any improvement is only temporary. When a patient is suffering from a TMD, the root of the problem, must be treated for the headaches to stop permanently.
