While there are actually twelve (12) different types of headaches, tension and stress headaches are generally the most common. With a tension headache, the pain is mostly felt near the forehead and/or back of the head, which is caused by contracting muscles creating a squeezing pressure on the brain at these locations. Stress headaches however; more commonly known as migraines, are much more intense and are typically accompanied by the patient having high sensitivity to light, vomiting, nausea, and blurred vision. The pain itself is more of a pulsing, throbbing pain at the temple(s) and/or forehead.
