If you experience chronic or severe headaches, a full examination by a trained neurosurgeon can help track down the cause by pinpointing which category (there are more than 150) your headache falls into. Common types of headaches include:

  • Tension headache (the most common)
  • Migraine headache (moderate to severe pain)
  • Mixed headache syndrome (tension migraine)
  • Cluster headache (the most severe "primary" headache)
  • Sinus headache (pain in cheekbones, forehead or bridge of nose)
  • Acute headache (seen in children, sudden and short in length)
  • Hormone headache (changes in hormone levels)
  • Chronic progressive headache (may be the result of an illness or disorder of the brain or skull)
