Migrane Symptoms Are Below..Quite a Few to Suffer With..


Migrane symptoms added to the pain can be frustrating.

There's tension headaches and migraines. Tension headaches can be so severe they feel like migraines. Doctors make the wrong diagnose sometimes. Let's see if we can sort out the difference between migraine headaches, and just tension headaches, and give the symptoms, since the pain is at the same place.

If you have a migraine symptom that's not on our list or experienced something unusual with your migraine, we would love to hear from you, all migraine sufferers would. We owe it to all migraine sufferers to give them the best info we can. And that may come from you guys. At the bottom, we have a page that you can leave your migraine symptoms for all to read. Someone may connect a symptom that has been worrying them. Something that they couldn't put their finger on.

Difference between migraines and tension headaches.

One difference between a migraine and headache is the severe migraine symptoms that go with migraines. Tension headaches generally don't have these symptoms.

A screening tool for migraines revolves around three items. That will be the:

  • Disability of the headache
  • If nausea is related to the headache
  • How photophobia you are. (sensitive to light)

If all three applied then you have migraines. That's not to say that a sufferer can't have a headache, and not suffer with migraines to. At one time my wife had a doctor that diagnosed her with tension type headaches, and migraines to.

Many migraine sufferers have both types of headaches to deal with. There's a difference, although you still have a headache.

Common migrane symptoms are, but not limited to:

  • Throbbing pain usually is felt on one side of the head, or all across the forehead.
  • Nausea, and vomiting
  • Sensitivity to light, and sound. 
  • Sensitivity to light, sound, and smell, which can also trigger a migraine.
  • Numbness or tingling in the face and hands.

Less common migrane symptoms that could be experienced are:

  • Cold hands and feet
  • Diarrhea

One of the signs that migraine sufferers have is daily activity making the head hurt worse. These are the migraine symptoms of the common migraine. Classic migraine has the aura, and the migraine sub-types such as the complicated migraines can have frightening symptoms.

Migrainures have several different phases with migraines.

The first phase should be recognized in order to be prepared when the migraine strikes:

  • Fatigue
  • Sleepiness
  • Craving for salty or sweet foods
  • Irritability
  • Depressed or feeling high
  • Excessive yawning


The second migraine phase is only experienced by about twenty percent of classic migraine sufferers. You may have aura which is visual disturbances, and less common can be:

  • Prickly sensations to the hand, arm, nose, or mouth.
  • Less common migraine symptoms can be taste, smell or hearing that can be affected.

The third phase is what no migraine sufferer wants, and that's the pain, known as the headache phase.

The last of the migraine phases to be experienced is one of being drained, and as my better half would often tell me, it's still there, just dull. Take good care, and don't bounce back to quick at doing to much physical activity.

Migrane symptoms verses tension headache symptoms.

The migraines are second to cluster headaches pain wise. Tension headaches account for more headaches than migraines, and cluster headaches.

Somewhere around 45,000,000 just in the USA alone. You see how large that number is.

The difference in tension headaches, and migraines.

Feels like a vice squeezing the forehead, and around the temples. It may start in the shoulders, or neck area, and work up. Migraine is often one sided.

A tension headache very seldom requires bed rest. But a migrane symptoms can be so severe, with the nausea, and vomiting, bed rest is needed. Tension headaches may be caused by muscle tension in the neck, head, and shoulder area, where migrane symptoms and causes are much more complex.
