    t,

     

    -:¦:-•:*'""*:•.-:¦:-•*Welcome to ChronicPainConnection!*•-:¦:-•:*'""*:•.-:¦:-

     

    It's time to see your doctor about those headaches. They could be a headache disorder, or they could be caused by one of literally hundreds of other medical conditions. The only person who can safely and accurately tell you what these headaches are and what to do about them is a doctor who can review your and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examination. Nobody can diagnose via the Internet.

     

    Do you have any other symptoms with the headaches? Is there any history of Migraines, "sick headaches," or sinus headaches in your family? If there are other symptoms, it's possible that these headaches are some form of Migraine. One out of five women have Migraines.

     

    There's also a fairly rare headache disorder called hypnic headaches. These headaches wake people from their sleep. You can read more about them in Hypnic Headaches - The Basics.

     

    If you'd like to read about some different types of Migraines and headaches, you can find information on our Types of Migraines and Headaches index page.

     

    Please see your doctor about these headaches. Statistically, they're probably nothing serious, but you certainly don't want to find yourself on the wrong end of those statistics. Unexplained headaches should always be checked out.
