Migraines are characterized by severe head pain often accompanied by other symptoms, which can be disabling in nature. These migraine symptoms include but are not limited to: nausea, vomiting, difficulty speaking, numbness or tingling, and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines often tend to run in families, and recent research has identified certain genetic components. Migraines can affect people of all ages and often go undiagnosed in young children.
The duration of a migraine attack can vary however most migraine attacks will last at least four hours.
Symptoms of Migraines vary and may include:
- Throbbing, pulsating pain, sometimes one sided
- Vision changes, blurred vision
- Light/Smell/Sound sensitivity
