Get the Right Help for Headaches
When seeking treatment for headaches, start with your primary care provider.

Help for Tension Headaches
Almost everyone has a tension headache from time to time. These headaches aren’t caused by disease. They are so common they are considered to be “normal” headaches.

Helping Others Understand Your Migraine
You and your loved ones will benefit if they understand your condition and how best to help.

Kids' Headaches: The Diagnosis Is Difficult
Most headaches in kids are caused by tension, not disease. Your pediatrician can determine what kind of headache your child has.

Migraines: Should You Take Preventive Medication?
For some people, taking medication every day can help prevent migraines and make them less painful when they occur.

Pulling Ahead of Headaches
About 90 percent of all headaches are harmless episodes that can be treated with over-the-counter painkillers, either alone or together with rest, ice packs or relaxation techniques.

The Cluster Headache: Just Like Clockwork
Cluster headaches -- called "cluster" because of their pattern of striking in groups or clusters -- hit at the same time of day for a period of weeks or months, then vanish as suddenly and as mysteriously as they appeared.
