A migraine is a severe headache that usually occurs on one side of the head.
It is often described as a “throbbing” type of pain and may be accompanied
by nausea and vomiting, blurred vision and extreme sensitivity to light
and sound. It is made worse with movement.
Often, the migraine may be preceded by an ‘aura’, which occurs approximately
15-30 minutes just before the headache starts, and during which the person
may see flashing lights, or spots in front of their eyes.
Other associated symptoms may include fluid retention, irritability, personality
changes, numbness of the face or extremities, and muscle tightness of
the scalp and neck.
