A headache is a symptom of pain in the head or neck region. We all get them occasionally. Most of the time they go away by themselves but sometimes they don't.
Headaches can be caused by many factors, the very common ones being stress, hormones, neck, and upper back tension. Allergies, dehydration, sinus problems, high blood pressure or withdrawal from coffee, alcohol, analgesics can also contribute.
