What Is The Difference Between A Migraine And A Headache?

Interestingly, there is a notable difference between a migraine and a headache. Treating these types of ailments naturally through the use of a hot tub can help you live a happier and more productive life.


Headaches usually occur on either side of your head, and the pain you experience can feel mild to severe. If you frequently feel pain at the temples, forehead, and back of the neck, you could be suffering from headaches. Often a headache can last anywhere between 30 minutes to a week, depending on its severity.


Unlike regular headaches, migraines are usually always intense or severe with pain and other symptoms such as seeing spots, vomiting, temporary vision loss, and sensitivity to light. In most cases, a migraine headache only affects one side of the head, but it’s possible to experience a migraine that affects both sides of the head.

Interestingly, migraines are divided into two categories, namely migraines with aura and migraines without aura. In general, a migraine can last anywhere between 4 to 72 hours.
