Surprisingly, many migraines and headaches stem from dental issues. Dr. Hosseini and his team offer solutions for migraines, headaches, and other pain to patients in Gurnee and the surrounding area.
Differences Between Migraines & Headaches
Headaches may sometimes be difficult to describe, and symptoms often vary from person to person, but they commonly include painful throbbing or squeezing sensations in the head or neck. They may be located in one part of the face or skull or may be generalized across the whole head.
Migraines are a particularly painful type of headache and can last from four hours to three days, usually one to four times a month. Along with the pain, people have other symptoms, such as:
- Sensitivity to light, noise, or smells
- Nausea or vomiting
- Loss of appetite
- Upset stomach or belly pain
What Causes Migraines & Headaches?
Though there is no singular cause of headaches or migraines, studies have shown a connection between a poor bite and chronic migraines. When the complex web of muscles that make up the jaw is somehow out of alignment, too much pressure is put on your jaw muscles, and they can become strained.
When this happens, the pain may not necessarily be felt in the jaw itself, but rather in the head as a migraine. Tooth clenching or grinding can also create abnormal pressure that contributes to headaches and migraines.
