Why do we have headaches?

Very often, a headache is letting us know that we are sick. For example, it may come together with a temperature, or a sore tummy, or flu, or a toothache.
We can have headaches for many reasons. For instance, today Cephalalgia has a headache for four different reasons:


Head One hurts because he is very excited. Tomorrow the Three Wise Men are arriving!
Head Two hurts because he has not had enough sleep. He is very tired.
Head Three hurts because he was crying non-stop for a long time.

Head Four hurts because he has not had an afternoon snack. He is hungry.


There is a kind of headache that is very annoying and hurts a lot. It is called a migraine. It is more usual for old people to have migraines. If you are ever with someone who has a migraine it is better to be quiet and leave that person in peace.
