Managing migraine headaches

A migraine is a throbbing headache that’s painful enough to stop your usual activities. You may also feel sick to your stomach, avoid light and noise, or have changes in your vision. Migraines run in families, but experts aren’t sure why some people get migraines and others don’t. You can often avoid migraines by figuring out what causes them. Your doctor can also prescribe medicine to keep them from happening in the first place or keep the pain at bay. Learn more about migraines and your treatment options.

Treat and prevent tension headaches

Most headaches are tension headaches. They’re rarely a sign of anything serious, but that doesn’t make them any less painful. In fact, although they differ from migraines in several ways, they can be just as disruptive and uncomfortable. Common triggers include stress, depression, hunger, and muscle strain. A tension headache typically causes steady pain or pressure on both sides of your head. Learn more about the differences between tension headaches and migraines, how to treat a tension headache, and how to keep them from happening in the first place.
