Doctor's Notes on Mild Headache Types, Causes, Symptoms, Home Remedies, Medical Treatment, and Cure

Headaches are common conditions but usually not serious. There are many different causes of headaches and the pain in different types of headache can vary in intensity, location, and duration. Mild headaches can occur frequently and predictably and many people who have them know what triggers the headache.

Symptoms of mild headaches usually do not need medical treatment. Symptoms of mild headache may include mild head pain that is aching, squeezing, or band-like, on both sides of the head, generally above the level of the eyebrows. Pain can be sharp, dull, constant, intermittent, or pounding. Additional symptoms that may accompany a headache include dizziness, numbness or weakness, changes in vision, balance problems, eye/ear/face pain, cold symptoms, fever, sensitivity to light or sound, or nausea with or without vomiting
