What Is the Difference Between a Headache and Migraine?
A headache, typically, occurs when the muscles between the neck and back are contracting. Many people who complain about headaches state that the pain can be felt on the lower back part of their head. When a person has a migraine, though, the pain tends to be severe and throbbing and it sends pain from side to side in the head. A headache will usually go away after only a few hours. A migraine, though, can last for many days.
