Migraine and TTH: share common triggers such as stress, mental tension, fatigue, lack of sleep, alcohol, and menstruation. Because of overlapping features between these two disorders, many researchers believe that TTH and migraine are not discrete clinical entities but may represent different points on a continuum of headache severity with TTH at one end and migraine at the other. For Topamax (topiramate) see a physician.
