Does migraine mean headache?
Migraine is a common neurovascular disorder. Usually there is severe pain on one side of the head. According to experts, there are more than 150 types of headaches. These can be divided into two categories, primary and secondary. Migraines fall into the primary category because they are caused by a medical condition. No blood test or any other means is required for diagnosis. Migraine is a special type of headache. But headaches can have other causes, too. Having a headache doesn’t mean you have a migraine!
Why is migraine pain?
