But, did you know that ponytails if worn too tight could be a true trigger to some of your worst migraines? Migraines aren’t as uncommon as you might think. According to Migraine.com, “more than 37 million people suffer from migraines in the U.S., and almost 18% of women experience migraines routinely.” So what exactly is a migraine and how does it differ from just a simple headache? The biggest difference is the many other symptoms that tend to cause suffering along with the aching of your head. A migraine will often cause nausea/vomiting, pain in the temples, sensitivity to light and/or sound, seeing spots/flashing lights, and possibly even loss of vision.
