Headaches & Migraines

Headache disorders, including migraines, are recognized as the second leading cause of global disability based on their impact on quality of life, work productivity, and overall functioning.

What is it?

A headache is a common medical condition characterized by pain or discomfort in the head or upper neck region. Headaches can vary in intensity, duration, and location. Various types of headaches exist, each with distinct features and attributes.

Migraine is a specific type of headache disorder that involves recurring, severe, and often debilitating headaches. Migraines are typically accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, and sometimes visual disturbances known as auras. Migraine attacks can last anywhere from a few hours to several days and can significantly impact a person's ability to function normally.

Migraines are thought to involve a combination of genetic, environmental, and neurochemical factors. The exact cause of migraines is not fully understood, but they are believed to involve changes in the brain's blood vessels and nerve pathways.
