The great majority of headaches are harmless events characterized by discomfort in any region of the head. Pain can manifest unilaterally or bilaterally. Pain might be subtle and throbbing, or it can be intense and radiating. A common headache's length can also vary substantially. Simple headaches caused by stress, excessive alcohol use, smoking, and weariness are easily cured with aspirin and calm slumber. The cause of more complicated headaches is unknown, however it could be due to aberrant nerve activity, regional changes in brain blood flow, or the improper release of pain-transmitting neuropeptides. Headaches are divided into two types: primary headaches and secondary headaches. (1).
