Cause

 

Headaches can be a result of many different seemingly unrelated problems such as environmental, emotional and dietary factors, poor posture, lack of sleep and tension. Tightness in the muscles of your neck, back and shoulders as a result of stress can also very rapidly lead to headaches and migraines, teeth grinding is also a common cause.

Symptoms

 

Symptoms of headaches and migraines vary drastically in severity, ranging from mild discomfort to excruciating pain. As well as a headache, migraine symptoms can also include nausea, vomiting and exaggerated sensitivity to light and sound. The symptoms of migraines can last from a few hours to several days, potentially resulting in massive disruption to everyday life. When a migraine is severe it can be impossible for the sufferer to work, drive or take part in everyday activities.
