Yes: There are several named migraine types, but the experience of migraine can be different for each patient even within the "same type". There are other headache syndromes, like cluster, that can be difficult to distinguish from migraines. Most of the differences are in features other than the headache, and won't matter as much to the sufferer, but can be important for providers to choose therapies.
