Depression Causing Heading

Can depression cause a daily headache which is not a migraine and not a tension headache but rather
a slight fogginess, and sensitivity to noise.  My headache does not have any of the typical symptoms of
migraine or tension headache except that the headache lasts for days and seems to get better with caffeine.

Dear Friend,
Did you tried the treatment plan, suggested by Hava?
It's an antient indian way of treating many stress / depression related issues.
No harm in trying it.
Well, for a pure medical treatment, you need to have an MRI scan done to know the details, if there is any atrophy or white patches being noticed.
Depending on the report, organic or supre-tentorial treatment can be planned.
Please discuss about the present condition as i can provide the treatment plan.

Try this pranayam, while awaiting the doctors response. The extra oxygen going into the brain and blood will help to control the depression and headache. Do the anulom vilom  with eyes closed, and concentrate on your third eye(between the eyebrows). I would like to how you feel after 9 days.
Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.
Anulom Vilom pranayam –
Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril  
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril  
then -keeping the left nostril closed  deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Repeat this cycle for 15 to 30  minutes twice a day.
Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed.
