There are several different types of headaches, classified on the basis of frequency, intensity, and location. Primary headaches are caused by overactivity of the pain-sensitive areas of the brain whereas secondary headaches are a symptom of some underlying condition. Headaches may last for a couple of minutes or hours at a stretch. The intensity varies from one person to another.
