Migraine – Treatments, Symptoms and Causes

What is Migraine?

A migraine is generally an unadorned headache felt as a throbbing pain at the front or side of the head. Some peoples also have other indications, such as nausea, vomiting and increased sensitivity to light or sound.

Migraine is a common health disorder, affecting about one in every five women and about one in every fifteen men. They generally begin in early adulthood.

There are numerous types of migraine, including:

• migraine with aura – where there are warning indications before the migraine begins, such as seeing flashing lights
• migraine without aura – where the migraine happens without warning indications
• migraine aura without headache, also identified as silent migraine – where an aura or other migraine indications are experienced, but a headache does not grow

Some people have migraines normally, up to several times a week. Other persons only have a migraine infrequently. It is probable for years to pass between migraine attacks.
Doctors used to trust migraines were related to the opening and narrowing of blood vessels in the head. Now they believe that the cause is related to genes which control the action of some brain cells. Medicines can help prevent migraine attacks or help relieve indications of attacks when they happen.
