Signs you suffer from chronic headaches

It’s normal to get a headache once in a while. Headaches become less normal when you're affected 15 or more days each month for a period of at least three months. When your headaches happen daily or weekly it's categorized as chronic pain. 

Chronic headache pain can derail you from enjoying coffee with your friends or acing your work presentation. The constant discomfort and soreness make every day more of a challenge.

Chronic headaches typically last four hours or more. Some of the symptoms overlap, so it’s important to be evaluated by a clinician.

What causes chronic headaches?

Sometimes diets and daily activities can cause headache pain. Changing your lifestyle might help lessen headache frequency. We can help determine whether you need to make changes and how to do so.
