Types of Headache

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

There are several types of headaches. Four of them are due to imbalance of the four humors;

the fifth type of headache is due to ulcers of the stomach that cause headache via the vagus nerve connecting the brain and the stomach;

the sixth is due to putrefied gastric gases that rise to the head;

the seventh is due to swelling in the gastric artery;

the eighth is due to overeating, and when part of the food is digested and travels to the intestines, the balance of the food that does not digest causes headache and heaviness;

the ninth type of headache occurs following sexual intercourse due to excess heat;

the tenth type of headache is caused by vomiting or purgation due to either excess dryness or moisture in the stomach;

the eleventh type of headache is due to extended exposure to the sun or high temperature;

the twelfth type of headache is caused by cold temperature and condensation of vapors in the head; the thirteenth type of headache is caused by absence of sleep (insomnia), or staying up prolonged hours at night;

the fourteenth type of headache is due to putting pressure on one’s head, carrying a heavy object on it, or injuring it;

the fifteenth type of headache is due to excessive talking, thus weakening the strength of one’s brain;

the sixteenth type of headache is due to attenuating physical exercises and exhaustion;

the seventeenth type of headache is due to depression, emotional stress, and prurient thoughts;

the eighteenth type of headache is due to hunger, whereby vapors rise to the head and cause pain;

the nineteenth type of headache is caused by swelling in the brain membrane, whereby one may feel as though his head is cracking or being hit by a hammer;

the twentieth type of headache is due to high fever or to a serious underlying disease – God knows best.
