It would be a very rare individual indeed who has never suffered a headache at some time in their life so it follows that almost all of us are familiar with the agony of suffering a headache. Sometimes a headache can be relatively mild, something that barely disturbs the normal course of the day whereas at other times, the worst headaches can be totally disabling.
For some people, their headache problem is considerably worse than this, as they suffer an extreme form of headaches known as migraine or even the far lesser known cluster (or `suicide') headaches. Migraine headaches are usually characterized by several factors in combination whereas cluster headaches are often described as the worse pain imaginable by sufferers.
There is no doubt whatsoever that for someone who is a regular or chronic headache sufferer, the pain goes considerably further than simply being a little uncomfortable.
In this report, you're going to read of many different ways of treating headaches entirely naturally, as well as some ideas for isolating what causes you to suffer headaches when you do so.
We will also consider many of the more common medical treatments that are used to treat headaches and migraine, whilst also analyzing the side-effects of many of these treatment methods, something which might dissuade you from grabbing the pill bottle quite so quickly the next time your head is a little bit sore!
And whilst there is no doubt that most people are more familiar with having a headache than they would like to be, it may come as a surprise to know that there are many different types of headaches.
There are several different systems of headache classification as well. However, it is now generally agreed that the most useful or widely accepted system of classifying headaches is that used by the International Headache Society, so it is with the IHS system of headache classification that we will begin.
