When Should I Be Concerned About A Consistent Headache?

Featured Image

The occasional headache, as annoying as it is, may not be a cause of concern. While headaches can still be somewhat mysterious, there are multiple known causes, including dehydration, stress, muscle tension, fever, alcohol consumption, posture, lack of sleep, and the consumption of certain foods.

If these headaches persist, occur constantly, or regularly detract from your quality of life, some underlying issue may be to blame. So, don’t suffer needlessly. Contact us at Aether Medicine in Wayne, PA to schedule an appointment and explore your pain-relief options. Board-certified physician and rehabilitation expert Dr. Asare Christian would love to help put you back on track.

Should you worry about your headaches? Consider the following criteria

Of course, pain is an important indicator of a potential underlying cause. If your condition causes intense, unbearable pain, you should seek medical help right away, as it could be a sign of some acute condition or emergency.

Consistency is also crucial. How often do you experience headaches? Is it always the same type of pain? Do they occur at a particular time, or do they accompany certain activities? Any patterns you can pinpoint are relevant and allow Dr. Christian to decide how to best treat you.

It’s also vital to note whether your headaches remain constant or if they become worse in terms of pain, duration, or frequency. Additionally, are they accompanied by any other issues, such as muscular pain, fever, dizziness, nausea, the feeling of pressure, or anything else?

If your headaches have been occurring for longer than a week, or if you experience multiple headaches per week over intermittent periods, we recommend contacting us. Similarly, if you have trouble sleeping at night, or if the discomfort caused by your headache gets in the way of daily living, be it at school, work, or during your leisure time, it’s best to seek a professional opinion in Wayne, PA.

We proudly offer a wide variety of conventional treatments, advanced regenerative therapies, and alternative medicines to help relieve your pain

We offer a variety of treatments to help you feel better and get back to doing everything you love. For example, therapeutic neurotoxins (BOTOX) have been proven effective in relieving the symptoms of migraine headaches, which (as sufferers can attest) are often debilitating, unrelenting, and unpredictable.

This treatment can reduce the effects of migraines, including nausea and sensitivity to light and sounds. BOTOX works by blocking the release of pain-causing chemicals in nerve endings, giving you the relief you deserve. And multiple studies have found this treatment to be safe and effective. Alternatively, it may help calm the overactive muscles that cause tightness and lead to tension headaches.

We also offer a range of alternative medications and state-of-the-art medical technologies and techniques, including ultrasound, platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP), and regenerative therapies.
