These are only three out more than 150 types of headaches recognized by the International Headache society. Three out of four headaches are caused by neck or scalp tension and more than 70% of people with headaches do not see a doctor. Headaches can be classified in two different ways: Primary/Benign or Secondary/Organic. Primary headaches are three listed above. Secondary headaches are caused by injury, illness, or sinuses.
There are multiple ways you and your loved ones can prevent headaches. Watching your diet carefully helps because different foods can trigger them.
