Research discussion: One theory of headaches is that people who suffer from severe headache and other types of chronic pain have lower levels of endorphins than people who are generally pain free. Thermography is an experimental technique for diagnosing headache. In thermography, an infrared camera converts skin temperature into a color picture, or thermogram, with different degrees of heat appearing as different colors. Researchers have found that thermograms of headache patients show strikingly different heat patterns from those of people who never or rarely get headaches. 1
