Firstly Migraine is NOT just a bad headache….. It is a debilitating neurological disease….. this is something many people do not realise….
The symptoms of a Migraine attack can include a severe throbbing pain on one side of the head – although in 1/3 of attacks, both sides are affected and you can even have a migraine with no head pain!
Everyone is different, and symptoms vary from person to person and even one attack the next. These attacks statistically last between 4 and 72 hours – but in some they can last days or even weeks…… They are often accompanied by one or more of the following: visual disturbances, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, extreme sensitivity to sound, light, touch and smell, and tingling or numbness….
There is more than one type of Migraine and the type is classified according to the grouping of its symptoms.
