In Germany about 54 million people suffer at least at times from cephalalgias. Three percent of them complain even on more than 15 days in the month about these complaints. Besides, importantly for an adequate therapy is the respective pain type.

Cephalalgia types

Therefore, in the following the different cephalalgia types are briefly summarised.

The "easy" cephalalgia

The easy, symptomatic or secondary cephalalgias are harmless as a rule and are treated by the patients themselves. They appear in certain situations, so that a direct cause is to be found: Übermüdung, stress, too much in nicotine or alcohol, not enough fresh air, infections of the upper airways among other things pains are individually very different from localisation and character here. If the cause is repaired, the cephalalgia also loses itself as a rule.

Women's cephalalgias

This cephalalgia is intensely investigated at the moment. Since today the pain research assumes from the fact that there are sex-specific differences in the pain feeling: Women react more sensitively to pains, these perceive earlier and try to influence them already in a former stage than men. Responsibly for the special female pain feeling is the teamwork of different factors: most considerably the female hormone household seems to be. Ailment women repeats under such complaints, therefore, should be checked the hormone household.

Tone cephalalgia

Tone cephalalgias are primary cephalalgias which seem episodically or chronically. They appear as bilateral, are of medium difficulty and own a vague-oppressive character.
Muscular spannings play with the genesis presumably a crucial role. Women are concerned more often than men. Beside painkillers non-medicinal measures are like muscle relaxation to Jacobson or a walk in the fresh air.


Migraine also counts to the primary cephalalgias; however, she becomes apparent attack-like as more moderate to strong cephalalgia and appears predominantly as one-sided. The attack begins often at night and continues from 4 to 72 hours.
Often accompanying symptoms appear like nausea, emesis, impaired vision as well as noise sensibility and photosensitivity. The fit with a so-called "aura" announces itself by some course forms. Women are concerned about three times more often than men. Certain situations (weather change, some food, stress among other things), but also the female hormone cycle are able to do a migraine attack "triggern".

Cluster cephalalgia

Men are concerned predominantly by the relatively rare cluster cephalalgia. These pains appear as attack-like and strict as one-sided - on the always same side - and have a piercing character. About the genesis processes only hypotheses exist as with the migraine. One supposes vessel-conditioned or neuro genes mechanisms.

Painkiller-induced cephalalgia

Many patients - the above all female ones which recite in practice because of long-term cephalalgias suffer from painkiller-induced cephalalgias. Frequent, uncontrolled intake of available without prescription painkillers is mostly the cause. These pains are vague-oppressive, already begin with waking and stop the whole day. By too high intake of painkillers and the by-products originating from it it can come to recent cephalalgias.
Therefore, a successful therapy can exist only of a logical denial.
