What MidSouth Can Do For You
A headache is defined as a symptom of pain occurring anywhere in the head or neck. While the definition seems pretty straight forward, headaches are more complex than they seem. Our team of pain specialists will determine which type of headache you suffer from, providing an action plan tailored to you.
In this section, we have identified some of the more common headaches that we treat. This is not a complete listing so if you suffer from a condition not listed, contact our office and ask if there is something we can do to help you.
For your convenience, MidSouth Pain Treatment Center has locations throughout the mid-south region in Tennessee and Mississippi.
Potential Causes of Headaches
Migraine headaches are severe, throbbing headaches often occurring in one particular area of the head. Nausea and sensitivity to light and sound are commonly associated with a migraine. Cluster headaches are characterized by attacks of frequent and severe pain, usually on one side of the head. These attacks are known as “cluster periods” and may last for weeks or even months.
Trigeminal neuralgia is a condition that affects the trigeminal nerve, which carries sensation from your face to your brain. If you suffer from chronic facial pain associated with trigeminal neuralgia, even mild stimulation of your face can create excruciating pain. Even something as simple as tooth brushing or chewing can bring symptoms to an unbearable level.
Trigeminal neuralgia may begin with mild and infrequent pain, but it can progress to severe chronic pain. Women are affected more than men, and this condition is most common in people over 50 years of age.
