There are many different types of headaches, but tension and migraine headaches are the most commonly treated. These two headaches may have a lot of similar symptoms, but are generally treated very different.
Neurologists most likely have to distinguish which headache you have and diagnosis you for the best course of medical treatment.

Muscle contraction headaches that usually consists of a dull ache on both sides of the head with a tight band across the front of the head.
- Migraine Headaches:
Produce moderate to severe pounding or throbbing pain, most common on one side of the head.
May be accompanied with nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and sensitivity to lights or sounds.
