Headache

medicalpicture Feature

Cologne, (PresseBox) - A headache refers to the sensation of pain in the general area of the head. It is caused by the stimulation of pain sensitive structures, such as the meninges, the skull, the blood vessels, the cranial nerves and some of the upper-most spinal nerves. The brain tissue itself however, is not actually capable of feeling pain. The medicalpicture special shows pictures and illustrations about headache.

Technically, the treatment of a headache is often primarily focuses on addressing the pain. Should theKopfschmerz und Stress ©medicalpicture headache be caused by some type of primary illness, this cause will have to be investigated and treated as well. Simple symptomatic treatment of a headache is generally not a long term option.

Typical drugs used to fight a headache are Aspirin and Ibuprofen. These are unspecific cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibitors which inhibit COX I and II. They act as a pain reliever, reduce fever and are anti-inflammatory. Another commonly taken drug is Tylenol (acetaminophen) which is a specific COX inhibitor (COX II) it generally does not have the stomach-upsetting side effects of aspirin. However, it does also not have an anti-inflammatory effect either.
