Although headaches are often a symptom of migraine, they don’t paint the entire picture of what migraine involves. Migraine is an extremely varied condition that includes a wide collection of neurological symptoms.
If you’re living with symptoms like head pain, vision changes, nausea, or head pressure, you might wonder how to evaluate whether your symptoms are pointing toward a headache or a migraine attack. Take this five-question quiz to better understand some of the differences between the conditions.
It can be difficult to tell whether you’re experiencing a migraine headache or a different type of headache. “I still have no idea what type of headaches I struggle with, as mine are really never the same,” one MyMigraineTeam member said.
If you’re having severe or frequent headaches, talk to your doctor. They can determine the cause and type of your headaches and help find the right treatment for you.
