Ouch, day four! Mine rarely get that long lived, though I just got over a three day one yesterday.
I get migraines (which are chronic and of varying intensities), clusters, tension, sinus, and occasionally hormonal headaches. The migraines I've had for as long as I can remember, and they have strictly limited my diet since the worst triggers include a good number of food preservatives found in most processed food.
The hormonal ones started a few years after I hit puberty, the tension headaches are actually pretty rare but often become migraine triggers, and the sinus ones started two years ago.
Hangovers are moot, and I'm very, very careful with my love of caffeinated beverages so that I don't become *actually* addicted or suffer withdrawal if I don't have any for a while. And thankfully I rarely have eyestrain problems (at least that I notice). I'm also very careful about never taking more than the recommended dose of medication, even if it seems like I've burned through it too quickly.
