Headaches are pain that can affect the head or neck area. There are several types of headaches, including migraine headaches, tension headaches, and cluster headaches. Headaches may be triggered by a health condition or problem, such as low blood sugar, inflammation in the sinuses, or depression. Headaches may also be caused by stress or anxiety, eating certain foods, or being in an uncomfortable position for too long. Headaches can be caused by a serious health problem like a brain tumor or aneurysm, infection of the brain, or stroke, but these problems are rarely the cause of a headache. Headaches can be managed with lifestyle changes like stress management techniques, regular exercise, maintaining a healthy diet, and eating regularly.
