In brief: Migraines

A migraine is a vasospasm of a blood vessel in the brain.
There are many symptoms. The common migraine's hallmark is a severe headache. The headache may be accompanied by nausea and vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound. Sometimes, migraines are signaled by an "aura, " which may be a visual symptom such as flashing lights or wavy lines followed by a headache. Common triggers - caffeine, stress.

In brief: Migraine

Migraine is usually a one sided headache of moderate to severe intensity.
It will last 4-72 hours and may include nausea, liight and sound sensitivity. Migraine is thought to be a genetic disorder so you will probably have a relative with similar headaches. In some cases, people will have aura symptoms that come on prior to the headache. These will generally last no longer than one hour.
