There are so many different types of headaches like
A] Tension headaches : A tension-type headache is a mild to moderate pain that is often described as feeling a tight headband around the head. A tension headache is one of the most common types of headache, yet its causes aren’t well understood.
Symptoms of a tension headache are as follows :
Dull, painful head pain
A sensation of pressure across the forehead or on the sides and back of the head
Tenderness in shoulder muscles, neck and scalp
B] Cluster headaches : A cluster headache occurs in cluster periods or cyclical patterns. They are one of the most painful types of TMJ headaches. A cluster headache commonly awakens you in the middle of the night with pain in or around an eye or on one side of your head.
Frequent attacks of cluster headaches can last from weeks to months, followed by remission periods when the headaches pause. During remission, no headaches transpire for months or sometimes even years.
However, cluster headaches are not life-threatening. Here are a few symptoms of TMJ cluster headaches :
A runny or stuffy nose on the affected side
Facial sweating on the affected side
Redness of your eye and swelling around the eye on the affected side
Drooping eyelid on the affected side

Extreme sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, vomiting and extreme sensitivity to light is often accompanied by a migraine.
