    What Causes Chronic Headaches?

    The exact cause of chronic headaches varies from person to person, and sometimes it may not be clear. One of the major causes is the activation of the trigeminal nerve, a major nerve that sends sensory information from the head and face to the brain.
    Another cause is muscle tension in the head and neck, which is caused by stress, bad posture or eye strain. Hormonal changes, such as those that occur during menstruation, pregnancy or menopause also cause chronic headaches.

    Other causes include:

It has three branches: the ophthalmic, the maxillary and the mandibular nerve. Triggering it causes muscle tension or affects your hormones.

    Lack of sleep or poor sleep quality also increases vulnerability to chronic headaches. Sleep deprivation affects your brain chemistry, immune system and pain perception, making you more prone to headaches.
