Migraine is a painful headache often associated with nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light
Migraine headache begins as a mild headache and then develops into severe pain in the head may come these pains for a period of hours to days and then disappear, and then come back, and may move from one side to the other in the head. Symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and hypersensitivity to light and sound are usually associated, and can be severe and can be in conflict with your daily activities.
Warning symptoms occur indicating that the sister is about to start known as the ora an hour before or with a headache and lasts (15-60 minutes) the aura can include visual disturbances, such as (flashing lights and loss of vision)
Or other disorders, such as numbness on one side of your face or arm or leg and difficulty speaking.
The true cause of the sister is not fully known, but scientists associate the sister with genetic abnormalities in certain areas of the brain.
The sister begins when the overactive neurons send signals to the blood vessels, which leads to the capture of these vessels and then expands and releases a group of chemicals and inflammatory substances that lead to migraines.
Migraines, which often begin in childhood, adolescence or early adulthood, can occur in four stages: gesture, aura, seizure, and post-initiation. Not everyone who has migraines goes through all stages.
One or two days before migraines, minor changes may be observed to warn of future migraines, including
• Mood change, from depression to high
• Urge to eat some types of food
• Stiff neck
• Increased thirst and desire to urinate
• Frequent yawning
For some, the aura occurs before or during migraines. Aura is an adverse symptom of the nervous system. They are usually visual, but they can also involve other disorders. Each presentation usually begins gradually, increases over several minutes and lasts for 20 to 60 minutes.
Examples of migraine supplication include:
• Visual phenomena, such as seeing multiple shapes, bright spots or flashes of light
• Loss of vision
• Feeling pricked as needles and nails in the arm or leg
• Weakness or numbness in the face or one side of it
• Difficulty talking
• Hearing noise or music
• Vibrational or other involuntary movements
Migraines usually last from 4 to 72 hours unless treated. The number of times migraines occur varies from person to person. Migraines can be rare or frequent several times a month.
Migraines may include:
• Pain on one side of your head usually, but often on both sides
• Heartache or pulsating pain
• Sensitivity to light and sound, sometimes to smells and touch
• Nausea and vomiting
• Migraine triggers
After a migraine, you may feel exhausted, confused and disfocused for a day. Some people were told that they were happy. Sudden brain movement may bring pain back into pain for a short time.
When do you see a doctor?
Migraines are often undiagnosed and untreated. If you regularly experience the signs and symptoms of migraines, keep a record of your seizures and how you have dealt with them. Then make an appointment with your doctor to discuss headaches.
Even if you have a history of headaches, consult your doctor if the pattern changes or if you suddenly feel different in your headaches.
Consult your doctor immediately or go to the emergency room if you have any of the following signs and symptoms, which may indicate a more serious medical problem:
• Severe and sudden headaches such as thunder shelling
• Headache accompanied by fever, stiffness in the neck, mental confusion, seizures, double vision, weakness, numbness or difficulty speaking
• Headache after head injury, especially if headaches get worse
• Chronic headache worsens after coughing, exertion, stress or sudden movement
• Pain caused by a new headache after age 50.
There are several factors that make you more likely to develop migraines, including:
Family history. If you have a family member with migraines, you may also have an increased chance of getting it.
• Age. Migraines can start at any age, although the former often occurs during adolescence. Migraines tend to peak during the 1930s and become gradually less and less frequent in the following decades.
• Sex. Women are three times more likely to develop migraines.
Sister catalysts (migraines)?
There are a number of migraine stimuli, including:

Hormonal medications, such as oral contraceptives and hormone replacement therapy, can exacerbate migraines.
• Drinks. These drinks include alcohol, especially wine, and plenty of caffeine, such as coffee.
• Stress. It can cause stress at work or at home (migraine).
Sensory stimuli. Bright lights and sunshine can stimulate migraines, as well as loud sounds. Strong scents — including perfumes, paint broths, passive smoking, etc.— cause migraines in some people.

• Physical factors. Intense physical exertion, including sexual activity, may provoke migraines.
Climate change. Changing weather or atmospheric pressure can cause migraines.
• Medications. Oral contraceptives and vasculatry, such as nitroglycerin, can exacerbate migraines.
