Headaches and migraines can stop us in our tracks, and chronic headaches and migraines can completely derail our lives. How do you tell the differences between headaches and migraines? Neurologist Anne Yacoub examines the many different types of headaches and their causes, defines the similarities and differences between headaches and migraines, and discusses the various preventive and curative treatment options, including infusions, nerve blocks, trigger point injections, medications and wearable devices.
