Headaches: Types, Causes, Symptoms

Many people get headaches from time to time, and they are usually not a cause for concern. In the event that you experience regular headaches that interfere with your daily life, you may want to seek professional treatment. Examples of headaches include tension headaches, which feel like a painful band around the forehead due to stress or lack of sleep. Migraines commonly present as throbbing head pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light or sound. Sinus headaches are the result of sinus blockages, which can produce pressure and pain in the forehead and cheeks. The board-certified otolaryngologists at Cross Timbers ENT offer solutions to alleviate and manage headache pain. Contact one of our locations in Mansfield, Midlothian, or Arlington, TX to schedule an appointment.

Diagnosis and Treatment for Headaches

During your appointment at Cross Timbers ENT, we will evaluate your symptoms and examine your ears, nose, and throat. In some cases, additional medical tests will need to be done. The goal is to identify whether the underlying cause of your headache is related to an ear, nose, or throat problem. If your headache is caused by recurrent sinus infections (sinusitis), ear infection, or another ENT issue, our team will design a comprehensive treatment plan to alleviate and manage headaches. Possible treatments include prescription medications, antibiotics, and balloon sinuplasty. If we identify that your headache is not caused by an ear, nose, or throat condition, then we can refer you to a neurologist or another specialist.
