Migraine Headaches

A migraine is a severe headache that might be preceded or accompanied by flashes of light (known also as “aura”), blind spots in vision, tingling in arms and legs, nausea, vomiting, and increased sensitivity to light and sound. Typically the headache affects one half of the head, is pulsating in nature, and lasts from 2 to 72 hours. Such migraine episodes seriously interfere with daily routine, degrading the individual quality of life.

The exact cause of migraines is still unknown. Migraine headaches are believed to be caused by changes in the brain-stem and its interactions with the trigeminal nerve – a major pain pathway, imbalances in brain chemicals, including serotonin, which helps regulate pain in the nervous system, genetics, or certain environmental factors.

Migraine is the 3rd most prevalent disease in the world, affecting 38 million people in the US alone (including children) and around 1 billion worldwide.
