What could be the cause of my headaches?. They start as soon as I went back to school this term and have been troubling me since the 26th January. I have had xrays of the head& teeth done. Also visited the orthopedic surgeon, chiropractitioner and optician and no fault could be found. My parent have been advised to take me for a brain scan. Please help

Gosh, T, there are so many possible causes of headaches, that it's quite a popular question to ask medical students in their final exams ! As apparently they were absent over the holidays, and started again when you went back to school, they could be related to stresses of various sort related to school and studies. You've seen an optician so apparently they're not due to eye-strain reading blackboards etc.
