WHAT exactly IS A HEADACHE?
Irritation of nerve endings from different parts of the head and neck can produce the unpleasant sensation that we recognize as a headache. These pain-sensitive nerves can be stimulated by stress, muscular tension, dilated blood vessels, and inflammation. Although the pain can sometimes feel as though it originates from deep inside the head, the brain tissue itself lacks pain-sensitive nerves and does not cause this kind of discomfort.
