Migraine is a headache that can cause severe pain with tremors or pulsations, usually on one side of the head. It is often accompanied by fatigue, vomiting and hypersensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks can last for hours to days and the pain can be so severe that it can disrupt your daily activities.

Some people experience a warning sign known as an aura before or with a headache. The aura may include visual disturbances such as flashes of light or blind spots, or other disorders such as tingling on one side of the face or arms or legs and difficulty speaking.

Medications can help prevent some migraines and reduce their pain. Good medications combined with self-help medications and life changes can help.


Migraine symptoms can begin 1 to 2 days before the headache itself. This phase of the prodrome is known. Symptoms of this phase may include:

  • desire for food
  • Depression
  • fatigue or lack of energy
  • constant snoring
  • hyperactivity
  • Bitterness
  • stiff neck
