Migraine is a severe, painful headache. The headache can come before or can occur with flashes of light, blind spots, tingling in the arms and legs, nausea and sensitivity to light or sound. These painful headaches can last for hours or even days. They are more common in women than in men and in few have chronic migraines that last for 15 days to six months.
Migraine symptoms can occur before the headache, during the headache and after the headache. Typical symptoms include throbbing, pulsating pain confined to one side or both sides of the head along with increasing pain during physical activity. Few experience sweating, stomach ache and diarrhea.
Migraine sufferers have a premonition known as prodrome, several hours to a day that the headache is coming. These premonitions include a sudden burst of energy, craving for sweets, thirst, drowsiness, irritability or depression.
Currently, there is no cure for migraine so treatment is aimed at preventing an attack and reducing the symptoms when they happen. Also, some lifestyle changes like getting enough sleep, regular exercise, drinking plenty of water, avoiding certain foods and limiting stress will reduce the frequency of migraine attacks. Hence, migraine treatment and prevention focuses on avoiding triggers, controlling symptoms and taking medicines.
