Dolor de cabeza

Los dolores de cabeza son causados, por lo general, por tensión muscular, problemas vasculares o por ambos. Las migrañas son de origen vascular y pueden ser precedidas por trastornos visuales, pérdida de la visión periférica y fatiga. La mayoría de los dolores de cabeza pueden aliviarse con medicamentos para el dolor que no requieren receta médica.
