Primary headaches are stand-alone illnesses caused directly by the overactivity of, or problems with, structures in the head that are pain-sensitive. This includes the blood vessels, muscles and nerves of the head and neck. They may also result from changes in chemical activity in the brain.
Primary headaches can occur when pain-sensitive structures in the head do not work properly.
Common primary headaches include migraines, cluster headaches and tension headaches.
Some types of headache can be both primary and secondary as they may be an isolated issue or a result of another condition or illness. Such headaches can involve:
- Direct physical stimuli, such as temperature and external pressure
- Pain over the scalp (epicranial)
- Physical exertion
- Other miscellaneous headaches.
- The most common methods recommended for treating headaches are rest and pain relief medication. Generic pain relief medication can be bought over the counter, or health care providers can prescribe preventative medication, such as tricyclic antidepressent anti-epileptic drugs and beta blockers
