Lack of 4 products provokes headache

Причины головной боли

Headache (novolat. Cephalalgia, from the ancient Greek brain + pain) is one of the most common non-specific symptoms of various diseases and pathological conditions, representing pain in the head or neck. The most common cause of headache is vascular disorders associated with dilation or spasm of blood vessels inside or outside the skull. This clinical symptom should be distinguished from migraine, which is its particular case.

Headache is not a painful sensation of the nervous tissue of the brain, since it lacks pain receptors. It occurs as a result of exposure to 9 areas sensitive to pain: the skull (periosteum), muscles, nerves, arteries and veins, subcutaneous tissue, eyes, nasal sinuses, and mucous membrane. The treatment of headache depends on the identified disease or the cause of the onset of the symptom, in most cases analgesics are prescribed.

Migraine (fr. Migraine from ancient Greek or Novolat. Hemicrania - hemicrania or "half of the head") is a neurological disease, the most frequent and characteristic symptom of which are episodic or regular severe and painful headache attacks in one (rarely in both) half head. At the same time, there are no serious head injuries, stroke, brain tumors, and the intensity and pulsating nature of pain is associated with vascular headache, and not with tension headache. Migraine headache is not associated with an increase or a sharp decrease in blood pressure, an attack of glaucoma, or an increase in intracranial pressure (ICP).

Headaches are companions of many diseases. But there is one kind of headache, unbearable and exhausting. This is a migraine. She is familiar to every 6th inhabitant of the planet. As a rule, pain during migraine is localized in one hemisphere of the brain. More often, migraine is observed in emotional people, with reduced resistance to stress.

History reference

Separate references to recurrent headaches, resembling the description of a migraine clinic, appeared more than 5,000 years ago. In the XIX — XVI centuries BC, descriptions of headache attacks were also found in the Babylonian literature, which was compared to a flash of lightning. For the first time, hemikrania, which is accompanied by vomiting and poor general well-being, has been described in Ebers papyrus as “half head disease”. In the book "Tszhzhzhuang" 581 BC, it was stated that Chinese doctors tried to treat the symptom by the method of "chen-chiu-therapy" (acupuncture and cauterization). Herodot wrote that in ancient Egypt among the priests who practiced healing were those who specialized only in the treatment of headaches. Hippocrates in his work "Aphorisms" described various types of cephalgia and was the first to identify it as a disease, and he was the first to describe the symptoms of migraine. Arete Cappadocia in the book “On Acute and Chronic Diseases” described 3 types of headache: cephalgia - moderate, episodic, lasting from 1-3 hours to several days and resembling tension headache; cephalea - lasting longer, more intense, difficult to treat and most likely due to organic pathology; heterocrania - similar in clinic to migraine. The term "hemikrania", from which the term "migraine" originated, was introduced by Galen. He used the works of Areteus of Cappadocia, but gave the explanation of the symptoms described. The Roman physician explained the hemicranic pain by the anatomical features of the cranial structure, believing that the crescent partition explains the pain in only one half of the skull. The first classification of headaches called “De Cephalalgia” was developed by Thomas Willis in 1672. In 1787, Christian Baur divided all headaches into idiopathic (primary) and symptomatic (secondary), and also identified 84 categories of headaches. At the end of the XIX century, in the book “On migraine headaches and other similar diseases,” Edward Leaing showed the differential difference between migraines and other clinically similar headaches. The clinical symptoms of cluster headache were described by Harris in 1926, but the priority for describing the disease belongs to Reader (1924). In 1939, Horton also described a cluster cephalgia clinic, but, unlike Harris, described it as erythromelalgia, and then as histamine cephalgia. Later, this condition was referred to as Horton syndrome. For the first time, the similarity of these conditions was indicated by Ekbom in 1947, and since 1952, at the suggestion of Kunkel, the disease is called “cluster cephalalgia”. In 1962, at the National Institute of Nervous System Diseases, the Headache Committee introduced a new definition of headache into practice, and also developed a classification of cephalgias and protopalgia, which existed for 26 years. In 1988, the International Classification Committee for Headache introduces a new classification of headaches and facial pains, which is used today.
