Migraine - Overview

A migraine is a severe head ache usually on the one side of your head. It's often accompanied by nausea and vomiting.

The pain of the migraine is often described as sudden, strong and pounding. Sometimes pain can be on the both sides of your head as well.

People affected with migraine are mostly sensitive to light and sound.

In some cases, people may have frequent attacks while others will have pain only now and then.
