The Pain That Comes With A Headache -
The hurt in headache pain originates from a network of nerves that cover the scalp and from particular nerves in the face, mouth, and throat. The muscles of the head as well as blood vessels along the surface membrane that surround the brain and base of the brain contain pain-sensitive nerve fibers. In addition to this, many nerves run from the brain directly to the face and head. These nerves have pain receptors which carry pain signals to the brain. Stress, muscular tension, and expanded (dilated) blood vessels are the provokers of the pain sensations. Once this pain message is received, the brain then registers it, originating from regions of the head, face, and neck.

a. Tension may strain muscles of the face, neck, and scalp. This leads to tight, pressing pain sensation of tension-type headaches.
b. Swelling and stretching of the blood vessels in the head leads to vascular headache pain: A migraine headache is the main form of vascular headaches.
