Migraine Symptoms

Migraine Symptoms Versus Tension Headache

While migraine headaches affect millions of people, they are still less common than tension headaches. Tension headaches cause a more steady pain over the entire head rather than throbbing pain in one spot.
 
Another difference between migraine headaches and tension headaches is that, for the most part, migraine attacks happen only occasionally -- while tension headaches can occur as often as every day. Although fatigue and stress can bring on both tension and migraine headaches, migraines can be triggered by certain foods, changes in the body's hormone levels, and even changes in the weather.
