General Overview

A migraine headache may cause a severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on one side of the head. It may also be accompanied by vomiting, nausea, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks may last for hours to days, and the pain can be so severe that it interferes with your daily life.

Some people have warning symptoms (aura) which occurs before or with the headache. An aura may include visual distortions, such as flashes of light or blind spots, or other symptoms, such as tingling on one side of the face or in a leg or arm and difficulty speaking.

Medications abound that may help prevent some migraines and reduce the frequency and severity of migraines. The right medicines, combined with natural remedies and lifestyle changes, might help to control your symptoms.

Migraine Progression

Migraines, which often begin at an early age, adolescence or early adulthood, may progress through four different stages: prodrome, aura, attack and post-drome. Not everyone who experiences a migraine attack will go through all stages.

Stage 1 - Predome

A few days prior to a migraine attack, you may notice minor changes that serve as warning signals, including:

  • Unexplained Constipation
  • Mood changes
  • Increase thirst
  • Increased urination
  • List Element
  • Frequent yawning
  • Stiffness in the neck
  • Various food cravings

Stage 2- Aura

Some people experience aura before a migraine attack and others during the attack. Auras are largely unexplained reversible symptoms of the nervous system. Most of the time they are visual but may also include other disturbances. Symptoms usually begin gradually and build up over several minutes and may last for 20 to 60 minutes.

Migraine aura may include:

  • Loss of Vision
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Hearing various noises or music
  • Pins & needles sensations in an arm or leg
  • Uncontrollable body movements such as jerking etc.
  • Weakness and/or numbness in the face or one side of the body
  • Visual phenomena, for example seeing various shapes, flashes of light , or bright spots

Stage 3 - Attack

A typical migraine generally lasts from 4 to 72 hours if untreated. The frequency and severity of a migraine attack will vary from person to person. Attacks also very from person to person and may range from rare to several times per month.

During a migraine attack, you may experience:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Pain that throbs, pulses or hammers
  • Pain on one side of your head, but may quickly spread to both sides
  • Sensitivity to light and sound that may also extend smell and touch

Stage 4 - Post Dome


When your migraine attack is past, you may feel drained, confused and disorientated for up to a day. Some people report a “high” feeling. Any sudden movements may trigger a repeated attack so be careful. It's also a good idea to keep a journal so you can avoid various triggers in the future.

When to see a doctor

It may surprise you that most migraines are often undiagnosed and therefore untreated. If you frequently have signs or symptoms of migraine, keep a detailed record or journal of your attacks and how you treated them (including the name of all medication). Make an appointment as soon as possible with your doctor to discuss your headaches supported by the entries in your journal.

Even if you have seen your doctor before, it’s a good idea to schedule another visit if you notice anything new or your triggers or headache pattern changes. Its best to be safe than sorry.
