So What are Migraine Headaches and How Do They Differ From Tension Headaches?

“The days lost, the children silenced, the husbands angered, the engagements cancelled, the misunderstandings created by this vicious affliction may well top all other human ailments.”
Tension headaches are usually described as a continuous pressure pain or tightness of varying severity over the entire head. Whereas migraine headaches are a severe, throbbing pain over one or both temples, or behind one eye or ear, and are often accompanied by nausea and vomiting.
A migraine headache will often start on waking up in the morning. However, they can occur later in the day and can last hours to one or two days.
Most people experience what’s called ‘a classic migraine’, where their visual symptoms can include blurriness, dazzling zigzag lines, blind spots or sensitivity to light occur just before and sometimes during a headache.
