Headaches are also one of the leading cause of Emergency Department visits. The treatment for migraine is different then other kind of headaches. Headaches can be related to stress, or sometimes can be generated from bad discs or joints or pinched nerves in the cervical spine. Headaches can also be side effect of some medications.
