At least 2 of the following features: Unilateral pain, Throbbing pain, Aggravation by movement. Moderate or severe intensity plus at least 1 of the following features: Nausea/vomiting, Photophobia and phonophobiaMigraine
Commonest type of headache. Due to muscle contraction, bilateral, back of head or upper neck. Present with non-pulsing "bandlike" pressure on both sides of the head, not accompanied by other symptoms. Massage relievesTension Headache

Observe the patient's facial expression and appearance asymmetry: Acromegaly, parkinsonism, Facial nerve palsy etc. Look for symmetry (e.g. plagiocephaly), size (microcephaly or hydrocephalus), masses and involuntary movementsInspection
