Head

aches & Migraines

Headaches and Migraines affect everyone. Some are more severely affected than others. Headaches are very common and can last around 30 minutes – some can last for up to several days. They can often be cured by taking simple over the counter medication. Migraines, however are a bit more severe. Migraine sufferers not only feel pain on both sides of the head but there are other symptoms such nausea, vomiting and increased sensitivity to sound and light. In most cases headaches and migraines can often remain with a person for a long period of time and have a negative impact on your daily life. Often in women a severe headache happens before the on-set of their period.
