Blaq

Answer:

Dear Blaq,

Tension headaches are the most common type of primary headache. Up to 90% of adults have had or will have tension headaches.

Researchers think that tension-type headaches occur due to an interaction of different factors that involve pain sensitivity and perception, as well as the role of brain chemicals (neurotransmitters).

Genetic factors are likely be involved in chronic tension-type headache, whereas environmental factors (physical and psychological stress) may play a role in the physiologic processes involved with episodic tension-type headache.
