How do you tell the difference between a headache and a migraine, and do you ever have mild migraines or are they always very strong? I have my own definition of the difference but want to see how others feel. 💙
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Nausea and Vomiting
Chronic Generalized pain
Migraine feeling burning and sharp and burry eyes and nausea and headache just good and little burry that it
My migraines are always in the same spot on my head and come with dizziness and light sensitivity. I also usually get pretty intense anxiety along with migraines.
Migraines don't even have to be painful I live with the symptoms for the most part daily. A headache is more manageable.
For me, migraines just feel different. Migraines are also more lasting than headaches. They stay for longer and are more painful than just a headache. I get migraine "auras" before my migraines, too, though there is no warning for a headache. I'd say headaches can get up to a 4 on my 1-10 pain scale and migraines can be anywhere in the 4-10 range.
My migraines make me want to cry they hurt so much. I don’t even want to open my eyes. My mood shifts because of the pain too. I get tension headaches a lot that can feel like 1/2 of a migraine but I can stand them, I can power through. But with my migraines I feel like I’m going to vomit and light hurts cause it makes it worse and smells ugh make it so much worse. I just end up crying and it makes it a lot worse
migraines usually make me feel dizzy, give me light & touch sensitivity, & i begin to feel a stabbing pain in my eyes. headaches are usually just annoyances to me more than anything.
i usually take tylenol if the symptoms are mild just to make sure if it is a headache or not. if tylenol doesn't work & my symptoms get worse, i take my migraine medication.
