What is a headache?


Headache is the most common way of saying that we have cephalalgia, which means “head” in Greek. It is a feeling of pain in the skull, which means the set of bones that form the head. Inside the skull there is the brain.

Carlota is the only one in the school who has two big toes on her right foot. However, she is not the only one with a headache. Almost everyone has suffered from cephalalgia at some time in their life. It doesn’t always hurt in the same place when we have cephalalgia
We can feel the pain:

- Around our nose (in the lowest part of the forehead and the cheekbones).

- Around one eye.

- Around our head, as if a ribbon was tightening around it.

- On one side of our head.
