With proper medical attention, Chronic headaches don't have to be part of life

For most people, headaches are merely a nuisance that hampers their ability to concentrate and interferes with the day-to-day business of life. For others, a headache can be debilitating. Yet, many who suffer with chronic headaches live with them for years by self-medicating.

"Everyone thinks they have a sinus headache, but more often than not, they are experiencing a tension headache," says East Jefferson General Hospital internist Dr. David St. Germain.
