How do you get headaches from illnesses?

ANSWER

People often get headaches because of an infection, a cold, or a fever. Headaches are also common with conditions like sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses), a throat infection, or an ear infection. In some cases, the headaches may be the result of a blow to the head, or a sign of a more serious medical problem.
