Headaches can be caused by stress, muscle tension, chemical imbalance, disordered breathing syndromes, nutritional disruption, side effects from medication, vascular dysfunction, sinus disorders, tumors and many more internal and external influences. 
  • Vascular type - or fluid pressure with pain experienced as throbbing from the inside of the head out usually classified as migraine although migraine is only one type of vascular headache.
