Answer

The remaining categories of secondary headache include headaches attributed to head trauma and neck trauma, nonvascular intracranial disorders (eg, hydrocephalus, tumor), substance abuse or withdrawal (eg, caffeine withdrawal), infection (eg, meningitis), homeostasis disorders (eg, hypoxia, hypertension), disorders of cranial and facial structures (eg, orbital pain, otalgia, cervical spine disorders), and psychiatric causes.
