Headaches are an extremely varied and common symptom of many conditions. In fact, about 15 per cent of Australians are estimated to be taking medication for a headache at any given time (ABS, cited in Better Health Channel 2015).

The term headache refers to any pain in the head, face or neck area (Healthdirect 2017).

Headaches vary in severity, frequency and length. The pain may be sharp, throbbing or dull, with gradual or sudden onset, and may last from less than an hour to several days (Mayo Clinic 2018).

Headaches are so prevalent because there are numerous causes (Better Health Channel 2015). Headache & Migraine Australia (2019) lists 37 different types of headache.

Headaches are divided into two categories:

  • Primary headaches, which are not caused by an underlying illness or injury; and
  • Secondary headaches, which are ‘secondary’ side effects of an underlying illness or injury.
