Hi, thank you for your question. Headaches are a common problem among our population. Your headaches that causes you to hardly do anything can be a terrifying experience for you. Furthermore, the headache at the back of your head could pin point to something very sinister. The temperature at 37.8 is a bit worrying as it nears 38 degree Celcius. You could drink plenty of water.

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.
