Headache vs Migraine: What's the Difference?

Wednesday, Sep 03, 2014

According to the National Headache Foundation, more than 45 million Americans suffer from chronic, recurring headaches. And, headaches are a common reason why people miss days of work or school.

Headaches are the most common form of pain, according to the National Institutes of Health.
Migraines are a type of headache that may occur with other symptoms, such as nausea.

For many people, it can be difficult to tell the difference between a simple headache and a migraine. About 12% of Americans suffer from migraines, which are three times more common in women than men.
