Almost everyone can say they have experienced a headache during their life. They can affect individuals of any age, at any time.

What are the Differences Between a Headache and a Migraine?

They can last from a period of 30 minutes to almost a week. There are different types of headaches, including tension, cluster, sinus, thunderclap, and Chiari.

A migraine is much more intense than a regular headache and often has additional symptoms and side effects. These symptoms include having pain behind one ear or eye, sensitivity to light or sound, nausea, temporary vision loss, vomiting, seeing spots or flashing lights, or pain in the temple area. The pain of a migraine may only be felt on one side of the head, but in a number of instances, it is felt on both sides, with a throbbing sensation. A migraine can stop a person from being able to function. There two types of migraines: with aura and without aura. These are the different “sensations” or warning signals that occur before an attack. They can last from 10 to 30 minutes prior to a full-fledged migraine headache starts.
