8 Migraine Facts and Fictions
Migraines Usually Involve Pain on One Side of the Head
Researchers say that in 60 percent of cases, migraines feature pain on just one side of the head. Still, some migraine sufferers, an estimated 40 percent, experience pain on both sides.
Migraine pain generally throbs or pulses. Sufferers often feel the pain behind their eyes, ears, or at their temples, although any part of the head can be involved.
Keeping track of the location of the pain can help you and your health care practitioner choose the right treatments.
