In brief: Variable

The headaches are due to an equally distributed increased intracranial pressure.
For that reason, they are often on both sides of the head- either front or back. Patients will also often have visual complaints and headaches behind the eyes. The headaches are often worsened with bending over and with valsalva. The headaches can be positional better either lying or standing.
