Migraine Vs. Headache - Know The Difference!

Pain Management Specialist, Kolkata
Migraine Vs. Headache - Know The Difference!

'Tension type headache' is the most common type of headache experienced by most of us in our life.

How to differentiate between a Migraine and Tension-type Headache?

When you feel pain or pressure in your head, it may become difficult for you to assess whether you are experiencing a tension-type headache or a migraine. Let's understand how different they are from each other.

A typical tension-type headache usually affects both sides of your head and varies from a mild to moderate pain. It can last from 30 minutes to up to a period of one week.

Some specific areas which get affected by a tension-type headache are:

  •   Temples
  •   Forehead
  •   Back of your neck

Factors that trigger this headache type are a muscle strain, stress or anxiety.

A migraine, on the other hand, is also a type of a tension-type headache which results in an acute throbbing sensation in one part of your head. Usually, migraine headaches are highly painful. Migraine pain makes it difficult for a person to carry out his/her daily tasks. Symptoms or signs associated with migraine attacks are:

  •   Vomiting
  •   Nausea
  •   Sensitivity to sound or light
  •   Pain in the temples
  •   Temporary loss of vision
  •   Pain behind your ear or eye

What are the common causes of a migraine?

  •   Hormonal imbalances in women - fluctuations in oestrogen, especially during menopause or pregnancy seem to trigger a migraine
  •   Drinks like wine and extremely caffeinated beverages
  •   Foods such as salty foods, aged cheese as well as processed foods can trigger the migraine attack.
  •   Medications - vasodilators such as nitroglycerine and oral contraceptives can intensify migraine pain.

How to treat a tension-type headache?

Fortunately, you can get rid of stress-induced headaches through over-the-counter treatments, which include:

How to treat a migraine?

If you experience migraine attacks less frequently, these medicines may give you quick relief:

Some preventive tips:

  •   Make changes in your diet such as avoid such foods, including caffeine and alcohol which are believed to trigger tension-type headaches.
  •   You can also try muscle relaxation exercises, yoga or meditation to ease the migraine attack.

Sir, from the past 1 week I am suffering from insomnia! And I feel exhausted when I wake up! Please help me.

Sir, from the past 1 week I am suffering from insomnia! And I feel exhausted when I wake up! Please help me.
Insomnia is a sleep disorder in which a person finds it difficult to fall asleep or to stay asleep. Insomnia also includes poor sleep quality, restless sleep, waking up several times during sleep, and feeling un-refreshed or tired after waking up.  Homeopathy provides a very safe, effective and non-habit forming treatment of both types of insomnia — acute and chronic. Since the Homeopathic medicines are sourced from natural substances, there are no side-effects. While Insomnia lasting less than a month is considered acute, if the condition continues for more than a month, it is referred to as chronic Insomnia. There are various causes of Insomnia. The prominent ones are stress, grief, depression, emotional disturbance, intake of stimulants like coffee and alcohol, and a huge number of medical reasons (like heart diseases, breathing disorders, thyroid problems, and rheumatoid arthritis). Insomnia is also one of the major concerns in elderly people.

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS

Hi Ganesh... the best solution is Homoeopathic medicines.. But fits (convulsion if thats what your are refering to) is not a simple disease.. and takes almost one year to 3 years to get completely cured.. So it is better to consult and then take regular medicine.. without that the treatment is not possible... You will need to give regular follow ups..

I have insomnia patient I had been taking restyl tablet 10 mg how to stop tablet naturally sleep.
Hi lybrate-user, Here are the effective, herbal sleep supplements they say will gently help you doze off and get your beauty sleep without a drug-addled hangover. 1. Melatonin - If you’re someone who has trouble falling asleep (rather than waking in the middle of the night), melatonin is the best option. This is a big one for anyone who lives in a city, travels a lot, or has an abnormal sleep-wake cycle (AKA parents of young children). Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone that’s released in cycles throughout the day. It keeps us alert during the day and at rest during the night, and it is what our body needs to in order to sleep. 0.5-2 mg of melatonin. 2. Holy Basil - If you’re under a lot of stress (or going through something emotional) and consistently wake up in the middle of the night, holy basil’s for you. It’s been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries, and “creates a sense of calm by lowering anxiety and depression. 1-2 capsules in the early evening. 3. Valerian Root - If your racing mind causes you to wake up in the middle of the night so often that you’re considering medication for help staying asleep, Valerian root is your friend. It can be very helpful in creating a low level of calm without causing a major hangover or histamine coma or fog. 1-2 capsules a half hour before bed. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Your neurologist should be able to answer your query well, initially you need to reduce the dosage and see, if no seizures you can further reduce the dose and gradually taper the dose and stop. Ifno epileptic attacks. Also get an eeg done.

जाने क्या होता है मिर्गी, दौरे (EPILEPSY) रोग, के बारे में भारत के ग्रामीण अंचल में हैं काफी भ्रांतियां।

DM - Neurology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS
Neurologist, Jaipur

मिर्गी, दौरे (एपिलेप्सी ) के बारे में भारत के ग्रामीण अंचल में हैं काफी भ्रांतियां। उन्हें दूर करने का उठाया है बीड़ा डॉ सुरेंद्र खोस्या न्यूरोलॉजिस्ट ने आओ उनका साथ दे ।

मिर्गी कारण, लक्षण और उपचार

मिर्गी (एपिलेप्सी) Epilepsy / दिमाग यानि मस्तिष्क तंत्र से जुड़ी बीमारी है। जिसमें मस्तिष्क विघुत तरंग विघटन होने पर मस्तिष्क कोशिकओं का शरीर अंगों से अचानक तालमेल बिगड़ जाता है। जिसे र्मिगी दौरा माना जाता है। मिर्गी स्थिति में व्यक्ति अचेत, मूर्छित, शरीर झटपटाना, मुंह से झाग आना, बेहोशी में चला जाता है। और मिर्गी दौरा पड़ने पर व्यक्ति की मांसपेशियों शरीर अकड़ ऐठ जाता है। बार-बार इस तरह के संकेत होने पर उसे मिर्गी दौरा कहा जाता है। मिर्गी दौरे की कोई समय सीमा नहीं होती। मिर्गी दौरा कभी भी रोगी को पड़ सकता है। अकसर मिर्गी दो तरह से होती है। पहला आंशिक रूप, आंशिक रूप दौरा कुछ समय तक रहता है। शुरूआती तौर पर सामान्य लक्षण मौजूद होते हैं। आंशिक र्मिगी दौरे को नजरअंजाद ना करें, समय पर इलाज करवायें। और दूसरा तीब्र व्यापक रूप जिसमें व्यक्ति अचेतना के साथ शरीर हाथ पांव मारना, शरीर अंग अंग पर रगड़, गिरने से सिर, हाथ, पैर चोट लगना, मुंह झाग आदि शामिल है। Mirgi का इलाज मुख्यतय मिरगी रोधी दवाईयों और मस्तिक आॅपरेशन द्धारा किया जाता है। र्मिगी रोग का वक्त पर सही इलाज ना होने से व्यक्ति पागल हो सकता है। 

मिर्गी को लेकर तमाम भ्रांतियां है। अंधविश्वास के कायल ग्रामीण मिर्गी को शरीर का विष मान नीम के पत्ती का जूस या फिर ऐसी गाय जिसने बच्चा न जना हो उसका मूत्र पिलाते है। कहते हैं कि यदि नाक से उल्टी हो जाए तो बीमारी का ठीक होना तय है। लोगों को यह पता ही नही कि इलाज से मिर्गी की बीमारी ठीक हो सकती है।

न्यूरोलॉजिस्ट का कहना है कि मिर्गी (एपिलेप्सी) दिमाग से जुड़ा एक सामान्य रोग है जिसका इलाज पूरी तरह संभव है। दवाओं के प्रयोग से 80फीसदी रोगी ठीक हो जाते हैं और बाकी 20फीसदी रोगियों को ऑपरेशन की जरूरत पड़ती है। इस रोग के पीछे कोई अभिशाप या भूत-प्रेत नहीं होता। डॉ खोस्या ने बताया कि पूरे देश के आंकड़ों पर गौर करें तो व्‍यस्‍कों में हर सौ पर एक व्‍यक्ति तो बच्‍चों में एक हजार पर एक मिर्गी रोग से पीडि़त है। डॉ खोस्या बताते  हैं कि समय पर इलाज हो जाने से दर्जनों युवक और युवतियों की शादी टूटने से बच गई।


मिर्गी आने के कारण / Epilepsy Causes

  • सिर में पुरानी चोट दर्द रहने से
  • रक्त से ग्लूकोज मात्रा कम होना
  • मस्तिष्क में आॅक्सीजन की कमी
  • मस्तिष्क न्यूराॅन्स असंतुलन
  • पूरी नींद नहीं लेना
  • दवाईयों के दुष्परिणाम से
  • ब्रेन ट्यूमर से
  • शरीर में विषाक्त पदार्थों को ज्यादा बनना
  • जेनेटिक स्क्रीनिंग
  • मिर्गी जांच / Epilepsy Check up
  • गिर्गी संकेत होने पर जांच E.E.G. Electroencephalogram तकनीक द्वारा
  • Brain C.T. Scan द्वारा
  • C.T. Scan, Brain MRI द्वारा
  • मिर्गी दौरा पीड़िता/ पीड़ित पर ध्यान देने वाली जरूरी बातें / Epilepsy Awareness टिप्स


  • मिर्गी पीड़िता को कभी अकेला ना छोड़ें। हमेशा आसपास नजदीकी बना कर रखें।
  • मिर्गी दौरा पड़े व्यक्ति को जमीन पर ना लिटायें।
  • मिर्गी पीड़ित व्यक्ति को पानी, गीली जगह, लाल रंग से दूर रखें।
  • मिर्गी ग्रसित व्यक्ति को दौरा पड़ने पर चोट लगने से बचायें।
  • मिर्गी के दौरान व्यक्ति की जीभ दांतों में मध्य आने से बचायें।
  • दांतों जकड़ने से बचायें, अकसर दांतों के बीच होंठ, जीभ जकड़ जाती है।
  • मिर्गी दौरा पड़ने पर पीडिता को होश में लाने के लिए चेहरे पर ठंड़े पानी के छींटे मारे। 
  • बेहाशी अचेत अवस्था में पीड़ित को तुलसी पत्तें, लहसुन मसलकर सुंघायें तुलसी और लहसुन बेहोशी तोड़ने में सहायक है।
  • मिर्गी दौरा पड़ने पर पीड़िता को पेट के बल पर लिटायें, जिससे झाग, लार नांक में जाने से बचायें। और गर्दन ऊपर की ओर रखें।
  • दौरा पीड़िता के गले, मुंह पर तंग, टाईट कपड़े से बचायें। 
  • मिर्गी दौरा पड़ने पर व्यक्ति के आस पास भीड़ ना करें। ताजी हवा खुला वातावरण बनायें।
  • मिर्गी पीड़िता को जूता अन्य तेज गंध ना सुघांयें।
  • व्यक्ति को प्राथमिक इलाज के लिए तुरन्त हस्पताल ले जायें।

He has a very hard life as he is executive Chef in a five star hotel. Could stress and fatigue cause a seizure. T houghhe has had an MRI done and had three years medicine.

MD - Psychiatry

Yes severe stress can lead to metabolic changes inside body and produce seizures, did you get an EEG done. If so what were the results then and now. If a person has single episode of seizure and is seizure free for 2 years, the drugs can be stopped.

Spinach protects nerves

In order for your brain and nervous system to function as they should, your body needs a high input of fat-soluble vitamins that contribute to the building up of the fatty layers that protect your nerves from damage. And one such vitamin is vitamin K, which you can get in high amounts by eating spinach.

Spinach also helps regulate the production of hormones in the nervous system to improve mood, sleeping patterns, and the body's response to physical activity and stress.

Spinach may not give you superhuman strength to fight off villains like Popeye's nemesis Bluto, but this iron rich leafy green can help you fight a different type of enemy -- iron-deficiency anaemia

I am 56 years old working in railways as a design egineer. I am finding the symptoms of parkinsons. Can you suggest me right ayurvedic medicine.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda

Dear , parkinson is a slow disease starts with tremors and gradually progresses to dyskinesia. Only fine tremors cannot be confirmed as parkinsons disease so kindly confirm the diagnosis with a neurologist in your area. Macuna nuts (kapikachhu seeds - mucuna pruriens) is a good medicine as it is a dopamine agonist although not the ayurvedic management can be a good supplement. Zandu has a otc product called zandopa which can be used. But before confirming consult and confirm the diagnosis.

I am suffering from migraine, wat are the diagnostics and medicines I have to use.

migrane can be managed with lifestyle changes and medications, try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation may help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. Rest and relax. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. It is very important keep a headache diary. Continue keeping your headache diary even after you see doctor. It will help you learn more about what triggers your migraines and what treatment is most effective. A dose of riboflavin in appropriate dose as prescribed by me, also may prevent migraines or reduce the frequency of headaches. Coenzyme q10 supplements may decrease the frequency of migraines, magnesium supplements may also be used to treat migraines do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

My son had suffered once" mirgi" before 7 years old What should I do please tell me.

Nephrologist, Chandigarh
A single unprovoked tonic clinic seizure (mirgi as you have called it) in your son when he was 3 years old and he has not had any after that carries good prognosis. You need not worry. Single unprovoked seizure has many other causes especially in young children and not necessarily be mirgi. So rest assured.

Cerebral palsy is the condition in which brain got some small trauma at the time of or before birth. And this is a irrepairable damage. But on the contrast the manifestation of this damage in brain can be controlled by utilising brain plasiticty. Make sure to start the child with occupational therapy and physiotherapy at the earliest. Latest studies show good result from sensory enrichment therapy. Later you can add speech therapy too. If child's cognition is not effected the child might as well go and get his schooling properly. Just do not waste time thinking. Be practical, each moment is crucial for brain development.
