"Headaches can be a nuisance---your head is pounding, you cannot concentrate and nothing seems to make the throbbing pain go away. According to Dr. Lawrence Robbins, author of "Headaches", up to 50 million people annually have debilitating headaches. However, headaches are not indicators of pain in your brain, but your brain is responsible for the chemicals involved to create a headache.
Headaches do not occur in your brain: while your brain can perceive pain in different areas of your body, the brain itself cannot feel pain. A headache is caused by swelling of the blood vessels around the brain, as well as tension in the surrounding muscles and nerves. Tension headaches, for example, are caused by muscles in your neck and head tightening up."
