Emergency Care for Head Injuries

While many of us get occasional headaches that are of no dire importance, the causes of headaches vary and some instances may call for immediate medical attention. From mild stress-induced headaches to more severe cases like migraines, and even life-threatening instances such as a stroke or aneurysm, any form of pain arising from the head can be frightening.

As a rule of thumb, medical attention should be sought out when new, unusual symptoms are emerging, or if the headache does not go away with pain relievers or progressively worsens.

Let our emergency care specialists address and help find the right solution for your situation by calling us at (903) 500-7321 today!

Differentiating Types of Headaches

Severe headaches may involve pulsing, stabbing, or throbbing pain that can be felt across a wide area of your head or localized to a small spot.

Common types of headaches include:

  • Primary Headaches - These types of headaches are not considered side effects or resulting from other conditions or diseases. Tension headaches fall into this category, and they are characterized by dull pain or pressure typically around the sides of your head or across the forehead. Cluster headaches are also considered primary headaches, with the sharp, burning sensation usually experienced on either side of your head.
  • Migraines - A severe form of headache, migraines can be accompanied by debilitating symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, lightheadedness, and even temporary vision loss.
  • Secondary Headaches - Secondary headaches are those attributable to another health condition, causing the nerves within your head to react to the induced pain.
