  • Let's take a look at cervicogenic headaches 01 September 2017 | View comments

  • This coming week is Migraine Awareness Week; but I wrote about that in June. So this week, let's take a look at a different, but related form of headache; cervicogenic headaches.
    Cervicogenic headaches are headaches caused by structures in the neck. Cervicogenic headaches are sometimes misdiagnosed as either migraine headaches or cluster headaches, both of which originate in the head. The incidence rate for cervicogenic headaches is estimated around 15%-20%, but is almost certainly higher due to misdiagnosis. Presentation of cervicogenic headaches can vary wildly, depending on what structure in the neck is causing the pain. The most common presentation is probably a tight, squeezing type of pain in a band-like distribution from the base of the skull to the forehead.
