What is the difference between tension headaches and chronic migraine headaches?

ANSWER

When chronic migraine headaches begin, you might notice that your headaches are less severe but happen more often, until they happen every day. This change may be linked to daily use of pain relievers. Some people with chronic migraine headaches have severe pain along with nausea and vomiting, much like other types of migraines. Often, it’s hard to tell the difference between tension headaches and chronic migraine headaches.
