About Headaches
A headache can cause pain anywhere on your head: your scalp, the muscles on your head, your face, even your mouth or throat.
Cluster and Tension Headaches
Tension headaches are the most common type of headache, and cluster headaches are the rarest.

Migraines are grouped into two categories: those with an aura – symptoms that appear before the pain starts – and those without.
