A headache can occur on one or both sides of the head, or it can be isolated to a particular spot. They can also radiate from one point to another, or can feel like your entire head is trapped in a vise.
The pain associated with a headache can be dull, sharp, or throbbing. This pain can develop instantly or gradually, with varying ranges of time–some an hour, while others can last multiple days.
Headaches also range in severity. A majority of headaches are not due to anything serious, but in some cases, they could result from a life-threatening condition.
