Headache and Its Impact

Headaches, often considered a routine discomfort, can in fact significantly disrupt daily life. Varying widely in intensity, duration, and frequency, they can manifest as anything from a mild annoyance to severe, incapacitating episodes.

The complexity of headaches, particularly their triggers and types, necessitates a deep understanding and specialized approach. Dr. Arun Saroha’s expertise in neurology positions him as a leading figure in the effective management of chronic headaches, especially migraines, which are known for their intensity and potential to significantly impair quality of life.

In his practice, Dr. Arun Saroha focuses on:

  • Evaluating the Impact: Recognizing that headaches can be symptomatic of underlying issues and appreciating their potential to affect mental health, productivity, and overall wellbeing.
  • Tailored Approach: Considering the individuality of each patient’s experience, including frequency, duration, and triggers of headaches, to provide a customized treatment plan.
  • Educating Patients: Ensuring patients understand their condition, which empowers them to manage their symptoms effectively and recognize warning signs.

How are migraines treated?

Migraine headaches don't have a cure, but we can manage them effectively. There are two main types of medications for this: ones you take when you feel a migraine coming (abortive), and others you take regularly to prevent them (preventive).

  • Abortive meds work best if you take them at the first signs of a migraine, especially when the pain is mild. They aim to stop or ease the migraine process, giving relief from symptoms like pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light. Some of these meds work by narrowing blood vessels, bringing them back to normal and easing the throbbing pain.
  • Preventive meds might be suggested if your migraines are severe, happening more than four times a month, and seriously affecting your daily life. These meds aim to reduce how often and how strong your migraines are. You usually take them every day to help stop migraines from starting in the first place.

Types of Headaches

There are several types of headaches, and they are classified based on their causes and symptoms. The most common types of headaches are:

  • Tension headaches: Tension headaches are the most common type of headache, and they are caused by tension in the muscles of the head, neck, and shoulders. They can be triggered by stress, anxiety, and poor posture.
  • Migraine headaches: Migraine headaches are characterized by a throbbing pain on one side of the head. They can be triggered by certain foods, smells, and environmental factors such as bright lights and loud noises.
  • Cluster headaches: Cluster headaches are rare but very painful. They are characterized by intense pain that is focused around one eye or on one side of the head.
  • Sinus headaches: Sinus headaches are caused by an inflammation of the sinuses, and they are characterized by pain and pressure around the eyes, nose, and forehead.

  • Tension and stress
  • Poor posture
  • Dehydration
