Headaches and migraines are a common occurrence in America. Nearly 1/3 of the population suffers from these painful conditions at some point in their lives. While it is not known exactly what causes headaches and migraines, many different theories surround this topic.

Types of Headaches and Migraines

There are many different types of headaches and migraines, but the most common ones are tension headaches, migraine headaches, and sinus headaches. Tension headaches are the most common type of headache and are generally caused by stress and muscle tension. Migraine headaches are often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and a throbbing sensation on one side of the head. Sinus headaches occur when there is pressure in the sinuses due to an infection or cold.

Causes of Headaches and Migraines

It is still not entirely clear what causes headaches and migraines, but there are a few different theories that seem to be the most popular. Some people believe that genetics may play a role in whether or not someone develops these conditions, while others think that they may be caused by stress. Another theory suggests that tension in the muscles of our neck can lead to headaches and migraines.

Symptoms of Headaches and Migraines

The most common symptom of a headache is, obviously, pain. This pain can be located anywhere on your head, but it is most commonly felt in the temples or forehead. Migraines often cause throbbing sensations and are sometimes accompanied by nausea and vomiting.
