Does your mother have spondylosis of the neck vertabrae? This can cause chronic headache as you have described as well as a host of other abnormal sensations (eg, numbness, sense of vibration) etc.
Other causes of chronic headache include:
* Tension headache (commonest cause of chronic headaches).
* Drugs (e.g. some blood pressure meds, some heart attack meds, oral contraceptive, overuse of analgesics).
