3. MIGRAINE HEADACHE

Many people with migraines might not even be aware that they have one because less severe migraine headaches are often mistaken for a tension or a sinus headache. A migraine is a neurological condition that results in throbbing pain, sensitivity to light and sound, nausea and vomiting.

Certain triggers such as a sensitivity to climate changes, hormonal imbalances, reactions to certain foods, and visual disturbances may help predict oncoming migraine pain that ranges from moderate to severe.

People suffering from chronic migraines are usually under a doctor’s care, which includes a remedy along with lifestyle changes.

4. CLUSTER HEADACHE
