Description
A headache is a very common condition which may vary considerably in severity and type. Its significance and cause may vary tremendously, at one extreme indicating the presence of a turnout or meningitis, while at the other extreme it may merely indicate a common cold or tiredness. Even so, persistent or recurrent headaches should always be taken seriously. Although the brain itself is insensitive to pain, the surrounding membranes - meninges are very sensitive, and changes in intracranial arteries, or spasm of the neck or scalp muscles, which may occur for various reasons, may cause considerable pain. Usually a clinical diagnosis should be possible; further investigations should only be necessary following head injury, if headaches recur or if neurological signs such as drowsiness, vomiting, confusion, seizures, or focal signs, develop.

Some of the more common causes of headaches are as follows. Anxiety is probably the most common cause of a headache and, where possible, the reason for the anxiety - overwork, family problems, unemployment, financial difficulties, etc. - should be tackled. Some people are more prone to anxiety than others. An unpleasant environment such as traffic pollution, badly ventilated or overcrowded working conditions, excessive smoking, etc., may provoke headaches in some people. Migraine is a characteristic and often disabling type of headache. High blood pressure may cause headaches. Occasionally refractive errors of the eyes are associated with headaches. Sinus infections are often characterized by frontal headaches. Rheumatism in the muscles of the neck and scalp produce headaches. Fever is commonly accompanied by a headache, and sunstroke and heatstroke customarily result in headaches. Finally, as already stated, diseases in the brain such as meningitis, turnouts and haemorrhage may first manifest themselves as persistent or recurrent headaches.

Migraine, or Hemicrania as it was sometimes known from the Greek word for half a skull, is a common condition characterized by recurring intense headaches. It is much commoner in women than men and affects around 10 per cent of the population. It has been defined as 'episodic headache accompanied by visual or gastrointestinal disturbances, or both, attacks lasting hours with total freedom between episodes'.

It usually begins at puberty though young children can be affected - and often tends to stop in middle age: e.g. in women attacks often cease after menopause. It often disappears during pregnancy. The disorder tends to run in families, though how is not clearly understood. In susceptible individuals attacks may be provoked by a variety of causes including: anxiety, emotion, depression, shock, and excitement; physical and mental fatigue; prolonged focusing on a television or cinema screen; noise, especially loud and high-pitched sounds; certain foods: e.g. chocolate, cheese, citrus fruits, pastry; alcohol; prolonged lack of food; irregular meals; menstruation and the premenstrual period.

Anything that can provoke a headache in the ordinary individual can probably hasten an attack in a migrainous subject. It seems as if there is an inherited predisposition that triggers a mechanism whereby in the migrainous subject the headache and the associated sickness persist for hours, a whole day or even longer.

The precise cause is not known, but the generally accepted view is that in susceptible individuals one or other of these causes produces spasm or constriction of the blood vessels of the brain. This in turn is followed by dilatation of these blood-vessels which also become more permeable and so allow fluid to pass out into the surrounding tissues. This combination of dilatation and outpouring of fluid is held to be responsible for the headache.

Two types of migraine have been recognized: classical and common. The former is relatively rare and the headache is preceded by a slowly extending area of blindness in one or both eyes, usually accompanied by intermittent 'lights'. The phenomenon lasts up to 30 minutes and is followed by a bad, often unilateral headache with nausea, sometimes vomiting and sensitivity to light. Occasionally, passing neurological symptoms such as weakness in a limb may accompany the attack. The common variety has similar but less severe symptoms. It consists of an intense headache, usually situated over one or other eye. The headache is usually preceded by a feeling of sickness and blurring of sight. In 15 to 20 per cent of cases this disturbance of sight takes the form of bright lights: the so-called aura of migraine. Most attacks are accompanied by vomiting. The duration of the headache varies, but in the more severe cases the victim is usually confined to bed for twenty-four hours.

Migraine headaches occur when a substance called serotonin is released in the body causing swelling and constriction of blood vessels in the head.
