Migraine headache: Migraine is a disorder of recurrent attacks. A typical migraine attack progresses through four phases: the prodrome, the aura, the headache, and the postdrome. Prodrome (mood symptoms, neck stiffness). Aura (25% of patients experience vision disturbance). The headache of migraine is often unilateral and tends to have a throbbing or pulsatile quality. Nausea, vomiting, photophobia can also be there
