Headaches are very common disease. WHO says nearly half of adults will have a headache. When we experience pain in the head, we get confused whether it is a migraine or just a headache.
Headaches are unpleasant pains in head that can cause pressure and constant aching. Sometimes it is mild and sometimes severe and pain is felt both sides of your head. Mostly the tension and pain are around the forehead, temples, and back of the neck. The most common headache type is a tension headache which means stress, muscle strain, and anxiety can lead to the same.
Migraines, will feel severe pain and other symptoms as like nausea, pain behind one eye or ear, seeing spots, sensitivity to light and/or sound, temporary vision loss among others. Some have severe migraines that they are admitted to the emergency room. And most of the time, you will feel pain on one side of the head. So, if you are experiencing intense, pulsing throbbing pain and unable to do daily tasks, then it could be a migraine.
