Is There A Reason Why I've Never Had A Headache?

I am 42 years old and I have never experienced a headache, including hangovers. My father is the same way. My question for you is what percentage of the general population never gets headaches? Has there ever been any research done on people who don't get headaches?


It IS uncommon for someone to have never had a headache. 90 percent of the population has a tension-type headache from time to time or a headache accompanying a cold-some type of headache. Headaches are found to be among the most prevalent of disorders for mankind. In fact, one-half to three-quarters of the world's adults aged 18 to 65 have experienced a headache or Migraine in the past year. Ten percent of the world's population have Migraine disease.

It may be possible that you have had a headache, but maybe you are just a tough cookie and didn't notice - or don't consider that sensation to be a headache.
