Migraine is an intense, often unbearable type of headache found more commonly in women than in men. The pain can be so intense that it negatively affects your quality of life and day-to-day routine activities. Although much about headaches is still not clear, some researchers think migraines may be caused partly due to fluctuations in the balance of a body chemical called serotonin.
Types of migraine
There are two types of migraine headaches - classic migraine and common migraine.
- Classic migraine: This type of migraine is preceded or accompanied by certain warning signs. You generally feel a sort of aura around you which includes seeing lights flashing, an array of colors, hallucinations, blurred vision, blind spots, numb or tingling feeling in the arms and legs and a temporary loss of vision, especially your side vision. It is also accompanied by emotional disturbances such as feelings of depression, irritability and an overall feeling of uneasiness. Classic migraine can cause headache on one or both sides of your head.
- Common migraine: You will not feel any aura with common migraines. They begin slowly and last longer than classic migraines. With common migraines the pain is felt on only one side of your head.
Common symptoms of migraine
- Dull or severe ache on one or both sides of the head.
- Nausea or vomiting.
- Disturbances of vision.
- Irritability at bright lights, noise, odors.

The following are some of the factors that can trigger a migraine attack. You may get a migraine headache with one or more of the following factors:
- Bright lights, strange odors or shrill noises.
- Fatigue, stress or other emotional disturbances.

The symptoms of migraine are not alike in all people. Different individuals experience symptoms differently. Some individuals have a sort of 'intuitive' feeling of an approaching migraine, hours before they get it. Before they get the migraine they may experience a sudden, unexplained spurt of energy, hunger, tiredness and/or mood swings.
