What is the Difference Between Cluster Headaches and Migraines?

Determining the appropriate headache treatment for a patient is reliant, in part, on accurate identification of the headache type. Unfortunately, headaches frequently fall prey to misdiagnosis.

4 Common Headache Types

Headaches all involve head pain, as the name indicates, but they come in a variety of different forms, both physiologically and in terms of their triggers and symptoms. A migraine, for example, is not just a particularly excruciating headache.
