Millions of Americans deal with headaches stemming from different causes each day. These headaches generally fall into two separate categories: tension headaches and migraines.
Research shows that up to 80 percent of Americans suffer from headaches, while approximately 13 percent of the population suffers from migraines. Migraines are the more severe of the two, often lasting for extended periods of time while resulting in nausea, sensitivity to light and other environmental factors.
