What does a Migraine feel like?

What is the difference between a migraine and a headache? Let me tell you.


I get asked often

“How is a migraine different from a headache?”

Well, let me tell ya…

You know when you leave a cupboard door open and then crack your head on it?

Or the pain of the first few seconds of a properly stubbed toe that makes you screech and you cannot breathe properly afterward?

How you can hardly think of anything other than the cracked head, or the stubbed toe.

That is a little like a migraine but the acute pain lasts for days and doesn’t disperse.

I’ve found a gel pack ice cap on t’internet to alleviate the first signs of said Migraine, will be picking up one of those bad boys and trying them out on our next dance around the park.
