What causes headaches?

During a headache, certain nerves inside of blood vessels and muscles switch on, sending pain signals to your brain. However, it isn’t clear why this happens.

It’s common to experience chronic headaches if you:

  • Are ill
  • Have chronic stress
  • Are in an unhealthy environment, such as one with household chemicals

Some doctors believe these triggers cause the nerves to turn on in the brain, causing pain. You may have a higher chance of having chronic migraines if they run in your family. 90% of children and teens who suffer from migraines have a family member who also gets them.
