What are headaches and migraines?
Headaches refer to any pain located in or around your head. This includes pain isolated to one side of your head, pain on both sides of your head, and radiating pain. Your pain may be dull, sharp, or throbbing, and develop slowly over time or occur suddenly and unexpectedly.
Migraines are a type of recurring headache that tends to cause intense, throbbing, localized head pain that may last a few hours or a few days. In addition to your headache, migraines may also cause other symptoms such as nausea, sensitivity to light, or weakness.
Though headaches are very common, if you experience more than two headaches a year, you’re considered a chronic headache sufferer. For some, headaches can be a daily occurrence and significantly affect their quality of life.
Dedicated to helping you get relief from your pain, the interdisciplinary team at Magnolia Medical Center offers drug-free treatments that provide long-term results for headache and migraine sufferers.
