There are 2 main types of headaches which are primary headache and secondary headache. Primary headache is only due to the headache itself without other causes. Examples are tension headache, cluster headache and migraine.

Secondary headache is due to underlying health conditions, such as sinusitis, meningitis, trauma, tumour, bleeding and medications. Some of these conditions are life-threatening and needed to be treated seriously.

It is helpful for you to keep a headache diary which keep tracks on the onset, duration, timing and progression of the headache. This helps the doctor greatly to establish a diagnosis. Doctor may also need to know any associated symptoms such as fever, weight loss or history of cancer. This is important to rule out the secondary headaches.
