Did you know that...?

... more than two thirds of all Germans complain about headaches? Just like back pain, headaches are one of the most common diseases in Germany and can therefore definitely be described as a widespread disease. Even in international comparison, headaches are often cited as a reason for the impairment of quality of life.

What are the types of headaches?

The two categories of headaches

  • primary refers to headache as a symptom of a headache disorder,
  • Secondary as a symptom of another disease such as sinusitis, colds or meningitis.
  • Secondary headaches occur much less frequently than primary headaches.

The three most common types of headache

Tension headache

Tension-type headaches are particularly common. If you feel pain on both sides of your head that feels oppressive and is accompanied by no other symptoms, it is quite possible that you are suffering from this type of headache. A typical association for the quality of pain is a tense band around the head. Tension headaches are not only aggravated by physical activity. If the headaches occur on fewer than 15 days per month, they are referred to as episodic - if they occur on 15 or more days they ruled as chronic. In addition to the skull itself, the shoulder and neck muscles may also be sensitive to pressure.


This form of headache, which is much more common in women than in men, occurs mostly, but not exclusively, on one side. If you would describe your headache as pulsating or stabbing and would like to have more Symptoms such as nausea or vomiting, sensitivity to light, sound or odor you may well be suffering from migraines. Physical activity typically increases this type of headache. Migraine episodes last on average 4 to 72 hours on, are felt in moderate to severe intensity, and recur periodically. Yawning or ravenous hunger can be precursors of migraine.

Cluster headache

The severe pain attacks usually occur on one side of the temple or around the eye. If your headaches occur more frequently at certain times and you are symptom-free in the meantime, it could be a cluster headache. Typical accompanying symptoms include a runny or blocked nose, a slightly drooping eyelid and red or watery eyes. The intensity of the pain eases slightly with movement. The average duration of the pain episodes is limited to 15 minutes to 3 hours.

How do headaches develop?

Besides the question of what helps against migraine or what you can do against headaches, you may also be concerned about the Mechanisms of origin of diffuse or punctate pain in the cranial region. In addition to all the discomfort that headaches bring, there are also some reassuring headache facts. For example, the pain does not originate in the brain, which has no pain receptors of its own - rather, it arises in the adjacent structures such as nerves or muscles.

If you can't answer the question about the origin of your headache, you're not alone. Despite intensive and ongoing research, it is not yet sufficiently clear how exactly headaches develop. A disturbance of important processes such as pain generation, pain transmission and pain inhibition seems plausible as a possible cause.
