Cough Headache

Cough Headache Migraine by Dr Winnie Lim Khoo

Cough headache is considered by some to be a form of exertional headache and is sometimes grouped together with other headaches described as “sneezing headache” and “laughing headache.” The International Headache Society defines cough headache as a headache that is felt in both sides if the head, which is of sudden onset, that lasts less than 1 minute, is brought on by coughing, and can be prevented by avoiding coughing. The most common triggers of cough in children are chronic bronchitis, asthma, and cystic fibrosis.
