Product Categories

A headache (cephalalgia) is a condition of pain in the head that is located above the eyes or the ears, behind the head (occipital), or in the back of the upper neck. The common headache is a primary headache which is not associated with any other diseases. Even though most of common headaches are due to tension, there may be a number of other causes such as eyestrain, overworking, not getting enough sleep, missing meals etc.

Headaches can be triggered by chocolate, cheese, and monosodium glutamate (MSG). People who are habituated to coffee or tea can have headaches when they don't get their usual daily amount. Common headaches affect people of all age groups, but it is more common in adults. This condition is usually relieved after rest.
