Headaches on top of the head may be caused by a variety of issues including trauma, primary headaches such as migraine or tension headaches, and other neurological conditions. Diagnosis of fibromyalgia, involves at least 3 months of widespread pain, and pain and tenderness in at least 11 of 18 areas (arms, buttocks, chest, knees, lower back,neck, rib cage, shoulders, thighs, etc).
