Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Some common causes of headaches include but are not limited to:
--allergies (food, plants, animals etc)
--side effect of medication
--a concussion
--ear infections
--spinal headaches

Here are a few symbols that can signify a serious issue:
---headaches accompanied by a stiff neck, fever, vomiting, confusion, blurred vision, dizziness
--headaches that are very painful in the morning and then improves throughout the day

Below i have pasted a link to a HER article that explains more in-depth on symptoms to watch for and what they could mean:

Let us know if you have any more questions.
