What Is a Migraine Headache?
A migraine headache is a recurrent headache that includes intense throbbing or pulsing sensations in one area of the head. It is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine headache sufferers can experience significant pain for several hours or even days.
Doctors believe migraines are caused by a series of neurological events that affect the blood vessels in the head. Hormonal changes, stress, and certain foods or drinks can also trigger a migraine.
Migraine Headaches With An Aura
Not all migraines are created equal. Some migraine headaches can also be accompanied by an aura, which is a series of sensations that set in before a migraine and last 5-60 minutes.
Symptoms of a migraine with an aura include:
- Seeing flashing lights or zigzag lines
- Experiencing blind spots in your vision
- Feeling numbness or tingling in your face or hands
- Speech disturbances
