A migraine is a neurological disorder characterised by hyper excitability of the nervous system.

Defining characteristics

Recurrent headache attacks lasting 4 – 7 hours

One – sided, pulsating, moderate to severe pain

Inability of function, photophobia, nausea, vomiting

For some people, a warning symptom known as an aura occurs before or with the headache. An aura can include visual disturbances, such as flashes of light or blind spots, or other disturbances, such as tingling on one side of the face or in an arm or leg and difficulty speaking.

There are a number of migraine triggers, including:

  • Hormonal changes in women. Fluctuations in estrogen, such as before or during menstrual periods, pregnancy and menopause
  • Disturbed sleep pattern
  • Physical exertion
  • Visual stimuli
  • Auditory stimuli
  • Olfactory stimuli
  • Weather changes
  • Hunger
  • Drugs
  • Physiological factors

Migraine can be a chronic condition that severely affects quality of life, making it a serious health concern. Knowing the stages of migraine can help you address the symptoms early and potentially help minimize its effects.

They tend to move through several stages:

  • Prodromal phase (before the migraine)
  • Aura phase
  • Attack phase
  • Postdromal phase (after the migraine)

Hours before the migraine begins -- and sometimes even the day before -- many people may feel:

  • Either unusually energetic and excitable or depressed
  • Irritable
  • Thirsty
  • Cravings for specific foods
  • Sleepy, with a lot of yawning
  • The need to pee more often

Aura Phase: Strange Feelings Start

About 1 in 3 to 1 in 4 people with migraines get an "aura" that begins before the headache or starts along with it. It may not happen with every headache, though.

An aura can include:

Changes in vision, such as:

  • A flickering, jagged arc of light. It may have a complicated shape. It usually appears on the left or right side of your vision. Over a few minutes, it may get bigger.
  • A blind spot in your field of vision. This problem -- combined with the flickering lights -- can make it hard to drive or focus your eyes on small objects.
  • You might "see" images from the past or have hallucinations.

These symptoms may continue to get worse over the next several minutes.
