Headache can be chronic, recurrent, or occasional. The pain can be mild or severe enough to disrupt daily activities. Headaches involve the network of nerve fibers in the tissues, muscles, and blood vessels located in the head and at the base of the skull. There are two major classes of headaches:1- Primary headache accounts for about 90% of all headaches. Mainly there are three types of primary headache: tension headache, cluster headache, and migraine.2- Secondary headache is associated with an underlying condition such as cerebrovascular disease, head trauma, infection, tumor, and metabolic disorder (e.g., diabetes, thyroid disease). Head pain also can result from syndromes involving the eyes, ears, neck, teeth, or sinuses. In these cases, the underlying condition must be diagnosed and treated. Also, certain types of medication produce headache as a side effect.Severe, sudden, and debilitating secondary headache that develops after a blow to the head, that interferes with normal activity, or that accompanies other symptoms (e.g., convulsions, disorientation, dizziness, loss of consciousness, pain in the eye or ear, fever) should be evaluated by a physician as soon as possible.The high prevalence and significant negative impact from chronic headache conditions suggest a need for effective identification and management of headache complaints in clinical practice Fibromyalgia is a clinical syndrome characterized by chronic, diffuse pain and multiple tender points at defined points in muscle and other soft tissues. Other characteristic features of the syndrome include fatigue, sleep disturbances, irritable bowel syndrome, interstitial cystitis, stiffness, headaches, depression, anxiety and decreased memory. In most instances fibromyalgia occurs without any precipitating factors. However it seems that it can also be triggered by trauma (e.g., surgery, childbirth, accident, sever infection, severe emotional strain) and can then be classified as post traumatic fibromyalgia. A combination of physical, anesthesiologic , and pharmacologic techniques are used in the management and treatment of this condition. Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been studied for its effect on myofascial pain, muscle spasm and stiffness resulting in diminution or disappearance of painful symptomatology and functional recovery.
