What is a headache and why do I have it?

Headaches, such as cervicogenic type are common and consist of pain in the neck and back of the skull areas, sometimes with added head and face pains. They are usually due to local structures like joints, muscles and nerves, that have become injured or irritated from major or minor trauma. They may also be caused by stress or anxiety.
