All it feels like is someone is hammering against the inside of your skull. The pain may feel the same, but there are many different reasons why we get them.
General headaches are some of the most common. These dull-feeling headaches can be brought on by things such as stress, lack of sleep, environmental factors such as smoke and pollution, hormonal changes, certain medications, too much or too little caffeine, and more. These types of headaches can be easily treated with over-the-counter medication, and are temporary. Other types of common headaches include sinus, tension and migraines. Persistent headaches should be brought to a doctor’s attention for treatment.
