About migraine

Back to the top

A migraine is a headache that generally affects one side of the head and causes intense pain. These throbbing headaches are usually accompanied by nausea and vomiting. They may also cause acute sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine episodes can last anywhere from hours to days, and the pain might be severe enough to prevent you from going about your normal activities.

A warning sign (known as an aura) may appear before or with the headache. Symptoms of a migraine aura include visual phenomena, such as flashes of light or blind patches, a tingling sensation on one side of the body, or trouble speaking.

Some migraines can be prevented and made less painful with the use of medication. The proper medications, in combination with lifestyle modifications, can help reduce symptoms and ease pain.
