Are Migraines Different from Other Types of Headaches? – Adel Olshansky, MD – Neurologist
– There are many types of headaches. For example, tension headache would be mostly mild to moderate type of headache and it would entail pain mostly in the whole part of the head
or a band-like sensation. Migraine, mostly headache very severe, and it’s throbbing pain
on one side of the head. So being unilateral is characteristic, having throbbing character of pain or very intense pain is
also type of this headache. There are many different types such as cluster headache for example. And certainly going with
pathological headaches such as with tumors or with meningitis, that’s a very different entity.
