Regular All kinds of Headache are caused by too much blood in the head. I suppose sex would, at least for the male population, since there would be a need for blood at the other head.

  1. loud noises staring at the computer going from darkness to brightness hitting your head getting up. i could make a 20 page list if i thought about it forEVER. there are alot of things that could make you get a headache. the possibilities are endless

  2. Headaches can be caused by lots of different things. You can have migraines which cause nausea and you have sensitivity to light and sound and they are hereditary. Headaches can also be caused by stress, allergies, hypertension and varies other things. I would suggest if your really interested in learning about them to simply do a search for information.

    From my experience sex can cure a headache. However it has never helped me out when I have had a migraine. Then again I don’t want my husband anywhere near me when I have one and he stays as far away as possible so I won’t throw up on him…lol

  3. There are so many things that trigger headache. Read on –
    Headaches may be among the first symptoms of hypertension, or high blood pressure. This headache is often located at the back of the head and is usually noted upon arising in the morning. The pain is throbbing or pulsating. This headache is worsened by exercise, straining, or stooping, since these activities raise blood pressure. A diagnosis can usually be made by checking the blood pressure, which is measured as two numbers: The systolic pressure is listed above the diastolic pressure. A normal reading might be 120/80 (systolic/diastolic). The number 120 (millimeters of mercury) is the systolic pressure, which may vary with activity, exertion, or nervousness. In the diagnosis of hypertension, the diastolic number (in this example 80) is especially important. A diastolic pressure exceeding 100-110 mm (millimeters) of mercury is usually present if hypertension is the true cause of the current headaches. For most patients, treatment consists of medication to lower the pressure, and a low-salt diet and weight reduction when indicated. Evaluation and treatment for high blood pressure are by an internist, family physician, or cardiologist.

  4. Headaches have a wide variety of causes, ranging from eyestrain to inflammation of the sinus cavities to life-threatening conditions such as encephalitis, brain cancer, and cerebral aneurysms. When the headache occurs in conjunction with a head injury the cause is usually quite evident; however, many causes of headaches are more elusive. The most common
    type of headache is a tension headache. Some people experience headaches when they are hungry or dehydrated.

    Traditional theories about headaches link tension-type headaches to muscle contraction, and migraine and cluster headaches to blood vessel dilation (swelling). Pain-sensitive structures in the head include blood vessel walls, membranous coverings of the brain, and scalp and neck muscles. Brain tissue itself has no sensitivity to pain. Therefore, headaches may result from contraction of the muscles of the scalp, face or neck; dilation of the blood vessels in the head; or brain swelling that stretches the brain’s coverings. Involvement of specific nerves of the face and head may also cause characteristic headaches. Sinus inflammation is a common cause of headache. Keeping a headache diary may help link headaches to stressful occurrences, menstrual phases, food triggers, or medication.
