Diagnosis of migraines may be difficult and they should not be confused with headaches, such as tension or cluster headaches.

Tension headaches: usually present with a mild, dull pain affecting both sides of the head and can last from 30 minutes to several days.

Cluster headaches: usually presents as severe pain, affecting both sides of the head and you may feel a ‘stabbing’ pain behind the eye. Cluster headaches occur at the same time each year and can last from 15-180 minutes.

Migraines: usually presents with a moderate-severe throbbing pain affecting the front or one side of the head, which can last from 4-72 hours and may be associated with nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and visual disturbances.
