In “A new approach to healing headaches: 1 Bioenergetic basis” I presented experimental evidence of acute cellular energy deficit involved in headaches. Simply put, whenever the brain is critically low on energy it sends a warning in the form of a pain sensation: “Whatever you are doing, it is damaging!”
But what causes this bioenergetic deficit? Is there a common cause between tension-type headaches and chronic migraine? In this article I will explore deeper insights into the origin of pain in the subjective experience of headaches. Then I will try to connect that subjective experience to the bioenergetic nature, the biology of headaches. This will allow us to search for ways of treating primary headaches.
