When you experience pain in your head it can be difficult to determine if it’s a headache or a migraine. Differentiating between the two is important so that you may learn how to prevent future attacks from occurring.
What is a headache?
A typical headache is pressure and aching in your head. The pain can range from mild to severe and most often if you experience a headache the pain is on both sides of your head. Triggers for headaches can be brought on by stress, anxiety, and muscle strain. There are different types of headaches including: cluster headaches, sinus headaches and thunderclap headaches.
