There are many factors that can cause headaches, some of which include lack of sleep, dehydration, postural ergonomics and changes to the vascular system. Occasionally, they can also be caused by disorders or dysfunction in the neck or jaw.
Headaches present as pain, aching or throbbing in different regions of the head or behind the eyes. They can present on both sides of the head, or just one.
