At some point in their lives, most people suffer from a headache. Whether it’s a tension headache, sinus headache, or a migraine, it happens to everybody.
There are many different types of headaches, each with different causes and symptoms. They can last as little as 30 minutes or as long as a week, and range anywhere from mild to severe. Typical symptoms include a dull, aching head pain and even tenderness of the scalp, neck or shoulders. Oftentimes, over-the-counter treatments can help get rid of them, but frequent headaches could require more treatment.
Migraines are a much more intense and painful headache. According to the Migraine Research Foundation, a migraine is actually a neurological disease that affects 39 million Americans. It’s the third most prevalent illness in the world, which results with approximately 90% of suffers unable to perform even their basic daily tasks. Typical symptoms of a migraine include a severe throbbing pain, blurry vision, vision changes, and sensitivity to light and sound. It’s not known what causes migraines, but typically migraines need to be treated with a medicine prescribed by a doctor.
