Headaches are a painful sensation that can be located in any part of the head. The pain typically ranges from sharp to dull and may appear with other symptoms. A headache can also be a sign of stress or emotional distress. It is also commonly a result of a medical disorder, like migraines, high blood pressure, anxiety, or depression. Most headaches happen in the nerves, blood vessels, and muscles covering the head and neck. Sometimes the muscles or blood vessels swell and tighten or go through other changes – all of which stimulate the surrounding nerves or put pressure on them. These nerves send a rush of pain messages to the brain, causing a headache.
