Migraine Q & A

What’s a migraine?

A migraine is a severe headache that can last for hours or even days. In many cases, these headaches are disabling for the patient.

What are the symptoms of a migraine?

The symptoms of a migraine vary. However, some of the most common symptoms patients experience include:

  • Pain that throbs or pulsates, usually on one side of the head
  • Sensitivity to light or sound
  • Blurred vision
  • Nausea
  • Lightheadedness

Some patients with migraines may also vomit or pass out.

What causes migraines?

Researchers believe that migraines may occur because of changes in the way the brainstem interacts with the trigeminal nerve. In addition, imbalances in certain chemicals in the brain may also play a role in the development of a migraine.

Some patients are more likely to suffer migraines than others. Risk factors for migraines include being female, having a family history of migraines, and being a young adult.

Most people who suffer migraines are more likely to experience attacks after coming into contact with certain triggers. Some of the possible triggers of migraine attacks include:

  • Emotional stress
  • Foods or food additives
  • Strong smells
  • Caffeine or alcohol
  • Hormonal fluctuations
  • Certain medications
  • Changes in the weather
  • Lack of sleep

Some patients with migraines may respond to more than 1 trigger.
