    I'm just curious to see whether my number of headaches is more or less than average.

    And yes, I know it's different for different people, that's exactly why I'm making this thread. Thanks.

    I get them pretty much every other day, but I have migraines so that's probably why it's more than average.

    I'm kinda sleep deprived most days so I get the odd headaches, but they don't generally last all day. Maybe for a few minutes. Sometimes if I'm really sleep deprived, I get them all day.

    Recently I have had one once a day, but I think I'm coming down with something...

    Maybe once a fortnight... Even less for one that I bother taking paracetamol for.

    I've not had one for about ten years for some lucky reason.

    Once a month or so, but that's probably because my eating habits are terrible

    Every couple of days.

    I have a weak eye, which puts strain on me, and I am especially sensitive to light.

    I either get one migraine every week or two and multiple headaches (or comes and goes depending on how you want to look at it) throughout the day or a migraine once every three days or so and no headaches.

    I can't help but lose!

    This is no joke but in my whole life I've only had a maximum of 4 headaches. My mum gets them practically every day. I wonder if I've gained some sort of genetic resistance lol. Up to the age of about 14 I never had one.

    Probably once a month. I play 5-a-side every Sunday morning for a few hours and I don't drink enough water so I end up with a headache because I'm dehydrated. I drink a lot more water now so it's less frequent. Before it was weekly
