8 Types Of Headaches You Should Never Ignore… The Last One Can Be Deadly.

Mixed Tension Migraine

Also known as the transformed migraine, the mixed tension migraine is the combination of tension and migraine headaches. Women are more prone to experiencing these than men, though sometimes even children can experience this type of crippling pain as well. It's believed that the people that usually go through migraines first consequently trigger a full-blown tension headache simply from the fear that a migraine might recur.

Acute Headaches

These headaches are believed to occur mostly in children. This type of headache has a sudden onset and has symptoms that recede in a relatively short period of time. Generally, the pain ends with a visit to the pediatrician’s office. In case there are no neurological symptoms found on the child, a respiratory or a sinus infection can be the primary reason for such a painful occurrence.

Also known as traction or inflammatory headaches, chronic progressive headaches only get worse with the passage of time. They are highly uncommon and are mainly the result of an untreated illness or brain disorder.
