Headaches are a very common condition that can range from mild discomfort to debilitating pain. Although the occurrence of headaches are common, frequently having headaches is not normal.
Common Causes of Headaches:

These most communing effect women and are caused by tight muscles in the neck. Symptoms of tension headaches include neck stiffness, tightness in neck and shoulders, dull aching pain, pressure in the head.
Excruciating headaches that occur on one side of the head or behind the eye. They tend to be throbbing in quality.
Severe headaches that are pounding and throbbing in nature. Additional symptoms may occur such as nausea, dizziness, ‘an aura’, visual disturbances, light sensitivity and noise sensitivity.
