In brief: Aura

Many people with classical migraines have stereotyped symptoms that precede the headache, referred to as an aura.
If you do have an aura, use this as your trigger to immediately take an abortive medication (nsaids or a triptan), as early aboritve treatment is much more effective than waiting until the headache proper appears.
