Migraines and headaches, in general, are not easy to cope with. They can last anywhere from 30 minutes to days at a time. Some people actually deal with head pain more than once a week or even every day. The main thing that anyone wants when it comes to migraines and headaches is relief. In order for that to happen, the first step is determining what kind of headache a person has. Here are a few that may fit the bill:
- Migraine: A pulsing or a throbbing headache that generally only affects one side of the head and is often accompanied by nausea, disturbed vision, and increased sensitivity to light and sound.
- Cervicogenic headache: These headaches are linked to pain that originates in the neck. 10-20% of headaches are this type.
- Tension headache: These can last 30 minutes or up to a week. They are known for a pressure like feeling in the head that may cause nausea, vomiting, and sensitivities to light and sound.

Instead of caring for symptoms, let’s take a look at how to get help for the root cause so that migraines may not reoccur.
