These vary depending on the type of headache, but there can be pain in one side or both sides of the head, the neck muscles, and the eyes. It can feel like a stabbing sensation.
The most common primary headache types (headaches with no underlying health condition) are tension headaches, migraines and cluster headaches.
What are tension headaches?
This is the most common type of headache. It can affect both sides of the head, the neck muscles, and the eyes. It doesn’t normally get in the way of people getting on with their work or free-time activities.
Anyone can have a tension headache, but they’re more common in adolescents and adults, and women tend to get more headaches than men.
Tension headaches are described as chronic if someone has them for around 50% of the time, over a period of months, or even longer.
What are cluster headaches?
Cluster headaches are very painful, and usually occur on one side of the head, around the eye. Anyone can have one, but they’re more common in men and are likely to start when a person is in their 30s or 40s. A cluster headache can come on very suddenly and cause a stabbing sensation. It usually affects the same side every time. The pain can make the sufferer very agitated. Other symptoms can include:
- A red, watery eye
- Drooping or swelling of the eyelid
- A small pupil
- Facial sweating
- A blocked or runny nostril.
A cluster headache can last from 15 minutes to several hours and be experienced as many as eight times a day. It’s not always clear what causes them, but it is thought that risk factors include:
- Having a family member who gets them
- Drinking alcohol
- Strong odours, like perfume, paint or petrol
- Getting overheated while exercising
Cluster headaches tend to follow a daily pattern and can last weeks or months.
If you think you are experiencing cluster headaches, you should make an appointment to see your GP. They can refer you for tests to check there’s no underlying cause. Although it’s unusual for a cluster headache to be a sign of a serious health condition, due to their frequency and the pain they cause they can have a negative effect on a person’s quality of life. It’s important to get help, because there are various treatments that can relieve the symptoms.
If you’re diagnosed with cluster headaches, you’ll most likely receive a prescription treatment as pain relieving medications you can buy "off the shelf" are unlikely to work on this type of sudden pain.

WHAT IS A HEADACHE?
Headache, or head pain, is very common and, depending on the type, it usually goes away on its own. A headache tends to last anywhere between 30 minutes and a few hours.
- Having a virus like cold or flu
- Being stressed, which can make the muscles tense up, especially around the neck and shoulders
- Drinking too much alcohol
- Having bad posture – being hunched over
- Problems with eyesight
- Skipping a meal
- Being dehydrated
- Taking too many painkillers
- For women, before or during a period, and during the menopause.
Can coffee cause headaches?
There is evidence to show that drinking coffee can increase the risk of headaches, but it’s thought that this is due to large quantities of coffee,2 so it’s probably best to consume it in moderation.
Can a headache cause neck pain?
Headaches commonly occur alongside neck pain.3 Given this connection, it’s worth trying self-help techniques to relieve neck pain, as these could help ease the headache at the same time.
- Take pain relief tablets, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, or rub a pain relief gel on your neck
- Try a low, firm pillow when you sleep
- Try heat or cold packs on your neck
- Try gentle neck exercises
There are some good examples at: NHS - Flexibility exercises.
