Types of Headaches

There are different ways to define headaches. Take a look at the categories of headaches that are common among individuals, below:

Tension Headaches

A tension headache is generally a mild to moderate pain in your head (front or back) that can affect the top of your skull down to your neck. Patients who clench or grind their teeth may become aware that they suffer from tension headaches but don’t recognize their jaw pain.

Other Headaches

Headaches can be directly linked to sleep disorders. Morning headaches upon awakening can be a clear symptom of this. Sleep apnea occurs when the oxygen levels decrease due to irregular breathing caused by OSA (obstructive sleep apnea). Air is then trapped and gets built up in the lungs and recycles to the bloodstream. When there is a lack of oxygen in the bloodstream, it can negatively affect the brain and cause sleep-disorder headaches. Sinuses and allergies can aggravate TMJ symptoms. Sinus congestion can put pressure on the facial structure and TMJ which can sometimes cause mouth breathing. Mouth breathing can lead to potential jaw issues and soreness.
