Most people will suffer from headaches several times during their lifetimes. Intense discomfort in the head or face is the primary sign of a headache. Most people don’t know the complexity that might go into a headache. Different types often present themselves in distinctive ways, for various causes, and with correspondingly varied treatment requirements.


Pain from a headache originates from a complex chain of neural, vascular, and nervous system interactions. Certain nerves that control muscle and blood vessel function become active for reasons that are not fully understood during a headache. Pain signals are sent to the brain from these nerves.
