Apparently, according to my doctor, a significant percentage of people never get headaches. Do you get headaches?

I get them all the time. Mostly tension or sinus headaches. Occassionally, about 3 time a year I get a migraine.

  • I do not get headaches but I do get migraines. And those thankfully over the years have lessened to about 1 a year.

  • seriously? people DON'T get headaches?! I get at LEAST one a month (during my period usually) that is bad enough to probably call a migraine. I get headaches a lot more often too if I'm not sleeping well enough or if there is something else going on, like you said sinus headaches and tension headaches. Monday I got a HORRIBLE headache from getting too much sun, like I really felt like I was gonna pass out and/or puke from the pain in my head... if your doctor is right I wish I was one of those significant percentage people!

  • I have one right now that has been lingering for 3 days now. It gets worse when I'm tired but it is constant. I get migraines (what I think I have now) and then I get tension headaches that usually go away once I sleep.

  • I get cluster migraines at least once a month. And no, they have nothing to do with my cycle.

  • I get them. Not very often but it's not rare either. It's usually tension or sinuses.
