Headaches can range from minor midday annoyances to debilitating, all-day affairs.
And no two headaches are ever exactly the same.
Some are dull, throbbing, and slow to come on, while others are sharp, shooting, and occur suddenly.
Being able to accurately describe the quality of your headache pain, as well as the location, intensity, frequency, and duration, goes a long way toward helping figure out the cause of, and hopefully the solution to, your headache.
