Headaches are a very common condition that most people will experience many times during their lives. Headaches can be more complicated than most people realize. Different kinds can have their own set of symptoms, happen for unique reasons, and need different treatments. A headache can affect any part of the head, and pain may be present in one or several locations. Headaches can cause various types of pain, and classifying the pain can help a doctor reach a diagnosis.

There are more than 150 types of headache. They fall into two main categories: primary and secondary headaches.
