When it comes to aches and pains you don’t want to experience in your body, a headache is up there

But, while all headaches suck, they’re not created equal. There are actually several types of headaches, and they can show up in different areas of your head

A headache’s location won’t tell you everything. Along with other symptoms, it can give you some indication of what’s going on.

“For example, sinus and tension headaches tend to be the front of the face. Headaches associated with neck spasm tend to drive back of the head symptoms.”

Again, where your headache is happening is and isn’t important. “Location can play a role in determining the type of headache, but it’s not everything,”

A tension headache is the most common type of headache, according to the National Library of Medicine (NLM)

A cluster headache usually causes pain in and around one of your eyes or the side of your head, per the Mayo Clinic
