Test Your Headache Smarts: A Quiz
What do you know about headaches?
When you get a headache, it’s usually not the bones of the skull or the brain itself that’s hurting. The pain comes from pain-sensitive nerves located near the muscles and blood vessels of the face, neck and scalp, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
But if it comes on suddenly and feels like the worst headache of your life, call 911. It might be a stroke, and every minute matters.
But for those everyday headaches, test your own head smarts with this headache quiz.
