This type of headache delivers a dull and typically steady pain, often across your forehead. It can be brought on by stress, which throws your brain’s pain processors out of whack. Studies find that relaxation techniques can reduce headache frequency by 50 per cent or more.
Migraines involve severe, throbbing pain, often on one side, and are sometimes accompanied by nausea. Common triggers include changes in sleeping patterns, skipped meals and exposure to bright lights or loud sounds. (A hangover headache is actually a mild migraine.)
