Headaches are extremely common illnesses with a combined lifetime prevalence of 90-99% in Europe. Despite this high prevalence, there are persons who have never, in their whole life, encountered a headache.
The aim of the study is to identify factors that protect against headache by studying multiomics in people who never have had a headache (headache resistant) versus non-resistant controls.
The investigators will measure multiomic changes (transcriptomics and metabolomics) after pain induction by Cold Pressor Test. 3 blood samples, two for RNA and one for metabolites are taken 5 minutes before a Cold Pressor Test and again 1 hour after the Cold Pressor Test.
The investigators hope to contribute with novelty to the current understanding of headache pathophysiology and development of more efficient treatment of headache.

Cold Pressor Test
The participants are instructed to keep the non-dominant hand submerged in ice-water for as long as possible with a maximum of 10 minutes.
Other: Blood samples
3 blood samples, two for RNA and one for metabolites are taken 5 minutes before a Cold Pressor Test and again 1 hour after the Cold Pressor Test.
- Transcriptomic changes [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]Difference in RNA expression between cases and controls after Cold Pressor Test.
- Metabolomic changes [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]Difference in metabolites between cases and controls after Cold Pressor Test.
