A migraine is more than a headache

People sometimes make the mistake of assuming that a migraine is just a headache that perhaps lasts longer than you would expect or does not respond as well to medication and painkillers. While both of those things may be true, it's important to note that it's far more than a headache. Migraines can be so severe that they make it impossible to do anything -- hobbies, work, exercise, etc.

The issue is that the severe headache caused by a migraine may also come with some of the following symptoms:

  • Blurred vision
  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Fever
  • Diarrhea
  • Fatigue
  • Pale skin
  • Loss of appetite
  • Feeling very cold
  • Feeling very warm
  • Extreme sensitivity to light,
  • Extra sensitivity to smells and noises
  • Throbbing pain that may move around your head
  • Belly pain and upset stomach
  • Nausea and vomiting

If you suffer from these on a regular basis, you know that it may be impossible for you to work. It's not just having a headache. You may be squinting into bright lights, constantly feeling like you need to throw up and running a temperature. Even a small sound could trigger shooting pain through your skull, and you may not be able to eat or keep food down, making you feel weak and tired. The last thing you want to do is try to work and associate with people. It's like being severely ill.

So, while a migraine does share some similarities to a headache, it takes everything a step further. If you have these often, you may need to look into all of the legal options you have.
