Head and Face Pain

It is common for people to suffer from occasional head pain, including headaches or face pain from a sinus infection. However, it is less common for people to suffer from ongoing severe bouts of head and face pain or craniofacial pain.

Otherwise healthy people can become victims of relentless head and face pain for a number of reasons. Constant headaches, eye pain, facial pain or stiff neck and shoulder muscles may be a cause for concern, as they can be symptoms of an underlying condition. Common causes include:

  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Occipital neuralgia
  • Temporomandibular joint pain
  • Cervical pain
  • Atypical facial pain
  • Facial neuropathic pain
