Headache is a very common symptom associated with many diseases and disorders. It has a high frequency of incidence, irrespective of age and sex. People at times experience headache affecting their comfort and capability to work. Frequently, it is of trivial importance and may be caused by minor problems like tension, stress or strain, psychological or emotional disturbances, over-exertion or eye strain, temporary dysfunction of digestive or circulatory systems. Reversible headache occurs in cases of minor trauma, sun, or as a consequence of noxae, or excess of alcohol, tobacco, tea or coffee.
