What is a Migraine?

A migraine is a neurological disorder that occurs due to abnormal brain activity. You may experience a variety of symptoms in addition to a severe headache. Conversely, a typical headache usually manifests as a mild-to-moderate dull or aching pain. It also often develops from life stressors that lead to tension in the body, particularly the neck and shoulder region. Along with that, treatment for headaches differs from treatment for migraines.

  • Nausea or vomiting
