Migraine Headaches: Episodic vs. Chronic

I think we're on part four of what you probably don't know about migraines, but frequent headaches aren't normal. So people who have migraine headaches are definitely divided into two different classes, right? So there's episodic and chronic.

What is a chronic migraine?

A chronic migraine is someone which is more duration. It's that head pain that's happened 15 days a month or more.

Episodic vs. Chronic

Episodic migraines are much less frequent, but chronic migraine patients always seem to have migraines, and they start to believe that this type of headache is normal on an everyday basis. They may think that over-the-counter pain relievers can solve the problem, but that's not the case.

Non-prescription pain relievers are not meant to be taken regularly, as they can have negative effects on your liver (Tylenol) or kidneys (ibuprofen). In some cases, they can even lead to other health problems like a stroke.

Instead of relying on painkillers, it is recommended to try NoMo Migraine band. It's a natural and safe way to instantly stop your headache or migraine.


To summarize, identifying whether you have a headache or a migraine can be done by considering symptoms like nausea, vomiting, localized pain, effects on vision and light sensitivity, heightened sense of smell, and lack of relief from painkillers.

Frequent headaches should not be considered normal, and it's important to differentiate between episodic and chronic migraines. Over-the-counter pain relievers are not a long-term solution and can cause adverse effects. Instead, try the NoMo Migraine band for natural and safe relief.
