      This type of headache typically requires a brain MRI with contrast (preferably) and a non-contrast brain MRA to also look at the arteries of the brain. Alternatively would be a CTA brain if MRI can not be done. Most often it is a benign headache disorder. Chiari malformation is a common anatomical variation often associated with cough headache, or headache brought on by exertion, bearing down (such as having a bowel movement), laughing hard, etc.
