Is it a Migraine or Another Type of Headache?
The difference between migraines and other types of headaches go further than just the extremity of the pain. Symptoms of a migraine include pain on one side of the face and head that radiate, light and sound sensitivity (even pain), and nausea and vomiting in response to the stimulus. Slurred speech, loss of words, confusion, and even sight problems are all associated with migraines.
There are many types of headaches from tension to cluster that can hurt badly. However, most people who suffer from migraines, as well as other types of headaches, agree that the pain from a migraine is much worse than any other headache in addition to the other symptoms. Acupuncture is an ancient practice of inserting very thin needles into specific points in the body to help with certain ailments and increase vitality. Our experts can help you reduce your migraines and other headaches with acupuncture sessions.
