A headache is defined as a pain in the head or upper neck. It is one of the most common locations of pain in the body and has many causes.

How are headaches classified?

Mason City Clinic | NeurologyHeadaches have numerous causes, and in 2007 the International Headache Society agreed upon an updated classification system for headache. Because so many people suffer from headaches and because treatment sometimes is difficult, it is hoped that the new classification system will allow health care practitioners to come to a specific diagnosis as to the type of headache and to provide better and more effective treatment.

There are three major categories of headaches:

1. Primary headaches

2. Secondary headaches

3. Cranial neuralgias, facial pain and other headaches


Epilepsy is a condition involving recurrent seizures, triggered by electrical signals in the brain. At least two seizures with no traceable cause are necessary to properly diagnose epilepsy. Regardless of severity, all seizures need to be taken care of, because they can pose dangers during activities such as driving and swimming.

Sleep Disorders

Sleep disorders are common conditions that involve difficulties falling asleep, staying asleep or waking up. Sleep disorders may develop as a result of changes in the brain regions and neurotransmitters, stress, anxiety, depression, poor sleep habits or many other possible causes. By not getting sufficient sleep at night, many people are affected during the day and may have difficulty completing their everyday activities.

Memory Disorder

Memory disorder, or dementia, is a series of age-related symptoms that involves a loss of mental skills and deteriorating brain function. Dementia literally translates to “Deprived of mind” and is most often caused by Alzheimer’s disease. Symptoms of dementia occur when nerve cells die or lose communication and slowly lose their ability to function.
