Urgh, headaches. No one's a fan, so what gives? They're probably the most common ailment and you'd be darn lucky if you've never experienced one before. And if you happen to be one of the not-so-lucky you've probably been zapped with a few different kinds. Throbbing, nausea, visual disturbances, vomiting — there's nothing really good that comes from having one. And if you thought nipping it in the bud with some pain killers was out to do the trick, that can actually set of another. No, kidding.

So while it's good to know that not all headaches are the same, it's wise you get up to speed on the causes, triggers and the treatments. Just so you know exactly what you're dealing with.

And whenever in doubt consult your medical physician.
