Head pain (or headaches) can interfere with both your physical and mental activities. While many headaches go away on their own or with the use of over-the-counter pain medication, some headaches are a symptom of a more serious issue. It’s important to know what type of head pain you are experiencing so it can be managed and treated effectively.
