Headache pain results when brain, blood vessels, head muscles, and surrounding nerves send pain signals to the brain.

Headaches come in the form of:

  • Tension
  • Cluster
  • Migraine

Why these signals activate headache pain is not certain. Some headaches are a hereditary condition. For instance, 90 percent of those who experience migraine headaches have family members suffering from migraines. Too much physical activity may also trigger migraine headaches.
