We at Headache Cure have already tackled several types of headache, but here’s one that we haven’t discussed yet. Paroxysmal Hemicrania (or PH) — as serious as it sounds — is an unusual type of headache that’s often felt in just one part of the face.
Symptoms include red and teary eye on the side that’s affected, a drooping eyelid, and a runny nose. Episodic Paroxysmal Hemicrania may attack as infrequently as once every month, while chronic paroxysmal hemicrania bombards patients almost every single day.
Though non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) often effectively provide relief for this condition, it is best to consult with your doctor as soon as possible to acquire proper diagnosis and medication.
Even if all types of headache may not seem to differ that much, it is important to know which particular type you’re suffering from as this will help your healthcare provider determine which treatment will work best for your case.
