Doctor :   Headaches are a result of irritation of nerves and pain sensitive structures such as the nerves arising from the brain, the blood vessels and muscles in the head and neck region.
Doctor :   They may be classified as primary and secondary. Primary headaches are those that do not have a direct underlying cause. They include migraine, cluster and tension headaches. Secondary headaches are the result of an identifiable structural or organic cause, such as lesions of the brain, irritation of the meninges (the covering of the brain), injury and pressure changes within the head.
