Although these headaches are of a more central origin (ie from the brain), treatment of the joints and muscles can reduce the body’s sensitivity to stimuli that build up to trigger an attack.
There are other more serious types of headache, which can signal a serious condition such as a tumor or leaking blood vessel. Things to watch out for are a severe headache that gets progressively worse over the course of days despite all efforts to ease it, is not related to movement, is associated with nausea, vomiting, visual change, speech change, unsteadyness, double vision, watering eyes (in conjunction with the other signs), odd sensations, general feeling of being off colour.
