Chronic Headaches Overview
Chronic headache conditions are those where a headache recurs. A headache that occurs daily is called a Chronic Daily Headache (CDH). Long-lasting headaches, worsening headaches, or severe headaches, are not usually what is meant by “chronic” headaches.
Some of the more common recurring headache conditions include: Migraine (including various subtypes of episodic migraines), Tension headaches, Cluster headaches, Muscle contraction headaches, Neck muscle headaches, and Vascular headaches. There are also headaches related to work activity (e.g. eyestrain), recurring headache reactions to substances (e.g. alcohol, caffeine), and also chronic head pain syndromes.
