Cluster Headaches
Cluster headaches occur in groups, or clusters, and individual attacks last one to three hours on average. They may occur every other day—or several times a day.

Headaches in Children
Many headaches in children may be caused by tight muscles and dilated blood vessels in the head. Other headaches may be caused by an actual problem, such as a tumor or malformation of the brain, although this is much less common.

Headache Pain

Be careful when you take medications to relieve headache pain. Taking three or more doses a day of a pain reliever for five or more days a week can lead to rebound headaches, according to the National Headache Foundation. Many headache sufferers don't realize this, and when rebound headaches occur, take even more medication, leading to a vicious cycle of pain.
