A headache is a pain anywhere in the region of the head and neck. The brain cannot actually feel pain, so it is thought that they are caused by disturbance of pain-sensitive areas around the brain, such as muscles and nerves.
Doctors classify headaches into two main categories: primary and secondary. Primary headaches are not associated with any sort of medical condition, whereas secondary headaches are associated with a range of conditions such as fevers, infections or head injuries.
Most headaches can be easily treated by over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs like paracetamol or ibuprofen. However, if you are experiencing chronic or frequent headaches then please consult your doctor.
