What is Migraine ?
Migraine is a common headache disorder usually felt as a throbbing pain on one side of the head. It is usually characterised by attacks of moderate to severe headache.
What are the symptoms of Migraine ?
Migraine main symptom includes throbbing or pulsating headache on one side of the head.
Additional symptoms include:
• Nausea and vomiting
• Increased sensitivity to light and sound
• Poor concentration
• Feeling cold or hot
• Abdominal pain
The symptoms may vary from one individual to another and some may experience the additional symptoms without the headache. Also, migraine symptoms can last between 4 hours to 3 days.
What causes Migraines?
It is not yet known what the precise triggers are for migraines, but it is generally accepted that the symptoms are induced by a widening of the blood vessels in the head. There are a number of medications that target this widening of the blood vessels when treating migraines. Some people find that particular feelings (such as stress or anxiety), foods (such as alcohol), or medications can cause a migraine attack. Others struggle to find a pattern. However, regardless of the cause of a migraine attack, the treatment is usually the same.
What is the difference between migraines and headaches?
Migraine headaches are different from your usual everyday headache – while headaches are usually only associated with a dull pain in certain areas of the head, migraines are characterised by further symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light, and a severe throbbing pain either at the front or side of the head.
