Causes of secondary headache

Overview

Temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, dysfunction, can be a cause of secondary headache. Secondary headaches result from underlying disorders which produce pain as a symptom. The TMJ may become painful and dysfunctional as a result of incorrect alignment of teeth and jaws. In severe cases, the TMJ may require surgical correction.
