Headache due to coughing

Are you complaining of a headache while coughing?

It is a headache that is provoked by coughing or any type of tension (sneezing, blowing your nose, laughing, crying, singing, leaning forward, stomach movements, etc.).

Primary cough headache is directly caused by coughing and does not require specific treatment. The cause of secondary cough headache is a problem with the brain and nearby structures of the brain - in such clinical cases, surgical intervention is necessary.

  • Mostly, you are worried for a few seconds or minutes, sometimes it lasts for 2 hours;
  • Headache is acute, sharp;
  • You feel pain in both parts of your head;
  • You may feel a dull ache for several hours.

In case of secondary cough headache, the pain lasts much longer and the following symptoms are also characteristic:

  • Dizziness;
  • Feeling of heart failure;
  • It is difficult for you to keep your balance;
  • Noise in the ears;
  • Loss of hearing;
  • Blurred vision;
  • Trembling.
