It can also cause discomfort or pains in the upper back or neck. There are different types of headaches. This article will focus on stress headaches, sometimes known as tension headaches. These headaches are brought on by every day common occurrences during daily life. For instance, they could be brought on by stress, by looking too long at a computer screen, or from excessive or loud constant noise. Healthline writes in their article that, "Extremely loud or prolonged sounds can trigger migraines and other headaches. Any loud noise — from a rock concert to a jackhammer — can set off head pain."
