Headache Types and Symptoms

Abdominal Headache

An abdominal headache or migraine takes place in the stomach instead of the head. It most commonly affects children between the ages of 5 and 9.

Cluster Headache

Cluster headaches attack in cycles and most commonly occur in men. They typically start between the ages of 20 and 40.

Exertional Headache

The exertional headache, like some other types of headache pain, is brought on by activity such as exercise, sex or intense coughing or sneezing.

Hemicrania Continua

Most common in women, hemicranias continua is a headache that creates ongoing, one-sided pain with no break or relief.

Hemiplegic Migraine

A rare type of headache that may run in families, the hemiplegic migraine causes temporary paralysis or weakness on one side of the body.

Medication Overuse Headache

The medication overuse headache is just what it sounds like — head pain brought on by the overuse of certain prescription or non-prescription drugs.

Menstrual Headache

Associated with menstruation, this type of headache can occur anytime during the monthly cycle.

Migraine with Aura

This is an intense headache involving various sensations, visual disturbances and other symptoms that occur 10 to 60 minutes before the actual headache begins.

Migraines without Aura

The most common form of migraine is the migraine without aura, a type of recurring, long-lasting headache that occurs with no warning.


New Daily Persistent Headache

When a patient with no headache history suddenly begins experiencing daily, unremitting headache pain, the condition is known as a new daily persistent headache (NDPH).

Paroxysmal Hemicrania

Paroxysmal hemicrania (PH) is a rare type of headache involving short, severe headaches on one side, either chronically or episodically.

Pediatric and Adolescent Headache

There are many types of headaches and causes that affect young or adolescent patients, including migraines, tension headaches, cluster headaches and headaches associated with serious health concerns.

Post-Covid 19 Headache

Headaches after recovering from Covid-19 may linger for sometime and are known as post-covid 19 headaches.

Post-Traumatic Headache

A headache that follows any mild, moderate or severe brain injury is called a post-traumatic headache.

Pressure Headache

Caused by an internal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak in the brain, a pressure headache usually manifests itself as intense headache pain that’s relieved by lying down.

Severe Headache

Headaches involving especially acute pain are considered severe headaches. These may sometimes necessitate admission to a hospital.

Severe Migraine

Affecting women three times more often than men, severe migraines occur in more than 12 percent of American adults.

Tension-Type Headache

The tension-type headache is the most common type of headache. Experts estimate up to 78 percent of the population has experienced them.
