In brief: Headaches auto accid

Post traumatic headaches are quite common and will go away after few weeks and are not serious but it is well documented that some headaches will persist and some have clinical features of megraine and have to be treated successfullly with anti migraine meds, why it happens is not known.
Although we know regular headaches may be due to neck injury, or post traumatic headaches.
