I woke up this morning at 9:30am with my head pounding. I went out and did some running around and got home around noon. When I got in the house my head was throbbing so hard I had to throw up. Sound, light, even just moving made it worse. It got so bad I felt confused, I could not really understand what my girlfriend was saying to me. It felt like I had a fever. All of a sudden I got goosebumps over my whole body and almost blacked out. I remember my whole body shaking really bad couldn't control it.

This is inaccurate. It is possible to have a headache/pain-free migraine. Therefore your statement on how migraines and headaches are similar is that they “both cause pain” simply isn't true. Additionally, you should mention that headache is a common symptom of both the prodrome and postdrome stages of migraine.
