A headache is an ache or pain occurring anywhere in the face, neck or head. Headaches are experienced through pain-sensitive structures around the head and neck including blood vessels, nerves, muscles, eyes, ears and sinuses.

While most people self-diagnose themselves with a headache, a proper diagnosis of frequent or recurring headaches is important to finding relief when symptoms occur.

With multiple types of headaches and numerous causes, it is essential to seek further care to determine a proper diagnosis and establish a treatment plan. In diagnosing headache types, a complete and accurate history of symptoms and characteristics is critical. Depending on the types of headache, treatment option will be varied.
