Headache is one of the painful conditions that most frequently affect humans, therefore it is among the major reasons for which people seek medical attention. It appears at any age and when pain is severe it markedly affects the patient’s quality of life.There is a wide variety of headache types, the manifestations of which may be associated with other underlying conditions; however, on occasion, headache represents a pathological condition in itself. One of the most relevant among these is migraine, with distinct characteristics whereby it can be easily recognized.These characteristics should be taken into account as well as the different therapeutic alternatives currently available in order to establish the most appropriate treatment to relieve the symptoms of such a common condition.
