Headaches vs Migraines
Headaches can be categorized as an unpleasant pain in the head ranging from mild to severe. Headaches can occur frequently and can be brought on by stress, anxiety, or most commonly tension. Other types of headaches are sinus headaches or cluster headaches.
A migraine is intense and severe. Migraines are headaches that have other symptoms that accompany them such as:
- Pain behind the eyelids
- Seeing spots
- Sensitivity to light and sound
- Temporary vision loss
Frequent headaches or migraines can really impact your life. One of the first steps to recovery is to pinpoint what is triggering these headaches or migraines. Oftentimes there are underlying conditions that are responsible.
