Conditions that need to be ruled out as possibilities in some cases of Headache or other Symtoms:

  • Brain Tumour
  • Aneurysm
  • Infection
  • Brain Injury and Head Pain - Concussions are the most common example of a closed-head brain injury. There may be no visible sign of head injury, but the brain has nevertheless received damage. A concussion is most often caused by a severe blow to the head. The force of the blow causes the brain to crash into the inside of the skull and to literally bruise.
Only one to five percent of head pain has an organic cause, but severe or persistent head pain should never be ignored. If head pain does have an organic cause the condition is often serious enough to require immediate medical attention. Seek medical help for head pain if you are in any doubt or have had an injury. Once cleared of any major organic situation then please come and seek natural treatment should you choose.
