Tension headaches cause squeezing or agonizing discomfort around the head. Because headaches are no fun, consider adopting some healthy habits.
If your eyes and cheeks hurt, you may have sinusitis. Migraines are the most common cause of facial pain, so these are unusual.
Thunderclap headaches are one of the warning signals that your headache is more serious.
Cluster headaches feel like something is prodding behind the eye. These are called Suicide headaches as these are extremely painful.
Sinus headaches are seasonal and accompanied by runny nose, sneezing, and watery eyes.
Airplane pressure changes trigger them. Stress management, hydration, and OTC painkillers can reduce your risk.
Exercise headaches can occur if the pain in the head is provoked by a certain activity (exercise, orgasm). These can last from a few minutes to few days.
If the pain is localized to one side of your head (either the left or the right) and feels throbbing or pulsing, it's probably a migraine.
