Heachaches & Migraines
A headache is a common and often uncomfortable sensation of pain or discomfort in the head or neck region. It can range from mild to severe and may manifest as a dull ache, sharp pain, or throbbing sensation. Migraines, on the other hand, are a specific type of headache characterized by intense pulsing or throbbing pain, usually on one side of the head. They often come with additional symptoms such as nausea, sensitivity to light, sound, or even smells, and can be disabling, affecting a person's ability to function normally. Migraines can last anywhere from a few hours to several days, significantly impacting daily life. Both headaches and migraines can be triggered by various factors, including stress, certain foods, hormonal changes, or environmental factors.
