Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) July 29, 2013
There’s a reason why some people suffered from a condition commonly known as the neck pain and headache. The pain and discomfort experienced by the sufferer is often incomparable and difficult for others to understand. More often than not, they’re nothing serious nor an indicator of some underlying condition. But the problem with this pain is that it is often either undiagnosed or misdiagnosed as tension headache or migraine. Even though they usually aren’t an outcome of some serious conditions, they can still cause a lot of stress.
Fortunately, sufferers of this symptom can now have a quicker and more accurate diagnosis. Dr. Adams Scott from iHealthNet.org has recently started a private interest group, "CerviHeadache," for this topic and has since shared with many other doctors that this symptom can in fact, be cervicogenic related.
"One of the objectives of 'CerviHeadache' is to strengthen the fact that neck pain headache is not due to migraine or tension headache. Many sufferers of this symptom simply shrug it off, thinking that it is just a normal headache", says Dr. Scott.
With the number of Internet users growing every year, "CerviHeadache" will first attempt to share this information with the general public through online channels such as forums, newsletters and health-related websites. For this, Dr. Scotts has also written an article on iHealthNet.org discussing about the symptom in details.
"Cervicogenic headache is currently unknown to most of the general public and I hope that by launching 'CerviHeadache', I can share the fact that neck headache symptoms can be caused by a problem in the upper spine, shoulder or the neck", Dr. Scotts concluded.
