Difference Between the Migraine & Headache Pain

Ever wondered why some head pains make you wish for a quiet, dark room while others just need an aspirin? Let’s crack this nut.

  • Regular Headaches:
    Unlike severe migraines, common headaches are typically tension-type and might be caused by stress, anxiety, or physical activity. Typically felt like a dull, aching sensation all over the head. It’s often accompanied by tenderness around the neck, forehead, scalp, or shoulder muscles.
  • Migraine Headaches:
    A more intense experience. Think of this as the ‘big brother’ of regular headaches. Along with severe migraines, individuals may experience nausea, blind spots, or increased sensitivity to light and sound. They can be preceded by migraine neurological symptoms known as “aura,” which can manifest as visual disturbances or tingling in a limb.

Effective Migraine Pain and Headache: Different Types of Treatment Options Available

Not all head pains are created equal. Just as there are common migraines and the more debilitating chronic migraines, there are also myriad treatments for migraines tailored for each.

  • Over-the-counter painkillers: Suitable for more common types of head pain.
  • Prescription medications: Targeted for those with more severe migraines and their unique migraine symptoms.
  • Massage Therapy: Relaxation techniques applied to specific muscles, joints or other soft tissue components of the body can help alleviate tension and reduce pain.
  • Acupuncture: Involves stimulating specific pressure points on the body to promote pain relief and balance energy flow.
  • Chiropractic Care: Manipulation of the spine and joints can provide relief from headaches caused by nerve irritation or muscle tension.
  • Physiotherapy: Involves targeted exercises and hands-on techniques to improve joint and muscle function, reducing headache symptoms.
