What Causes Chronic Headaches?
Most chronic headaches are considered primary headaches. These types of headaches don’t usually have any underlying cause. Secondary headaches — like spinal headaches, trigeminal neuralgia, post-concussion headaches, and thunderclap headaches — are just symptoms of a different medical problem.

Chronic headaches can start for several reasons. While your chronic headaches may be due to a medical problem like meningitis, the most common causes for chronic headaches include:

• Anxiety and stress
• Obesity
• Snoring
• Sleeping disorders, such as insomnia, restless sleep, or insufficient sleep
• Drinking too many caffeinated drinks or drinking them too close to bedtime
• A hereditary history of headaches
• Previous history of getting migraines
