Migraine is defined as a type of primary headache disorder categorized by recurrent headaches, ranging from moderate to severe.

The throbbing headaches are typically felt in only one side of the head and may last from 2 to 72 hours.
Migraine symptoms may include a pounding headache, nausea, vomiting, or sensitivity to light, sound, smell, and eye pain.

Though most people may use the term migraine to refer to any severe headaches, a migraine headache is the result of certain physiologic changes that occur in the brain. This results in the characteristic pain and accompanying symptoms of a migraine.

Not all headaches may be classified as migraines. Migraines are not the only condition that can result in severe or painful headaches.

Other types of headaches include cluster headaches and tension headaches.

Cluster headaches can be described as very severe headaches that affect one side of the head and are recurrent (occurring in a cluster over time). The pain associated with cluster headaches can be described as drilling. They can be worse than a migraine but are less common.

Tension headaches are more common. They occur due to the contraction of the muscles of the head including the scalp, neck, and face.

Causes of Migraine

Migraines are caused by abnormal brain activity and can be triggered by a lot of things. While the exact cause remains uncertain, most experts say that they begin in the brain, involving nerve pathways and chemicals.

There may be fluctuations in certain neurotransmitters, chemicals that send messages between brain cells. The brain’s blood flow as well as the surrounding tissue are affected by these changes and may predispose some people to develop migraine headaches.

Migraines tend to occur more in women than men and often first appear between the ages 10 and 45 years. They may sometimes begin earlier or later and may run in families. The symptoms can vary, but some are common.

Migraine triggers


Migraine attacks may be triggered by many factors, for example:

  • Changes in a woman’s hormone levels during a menstrual cycle or use of birth control pills
  • Various food such as red wine, cheese, MSG, artificial sweeteners, chocolate, dairy products
  • Changes in sleep patterns, such as not getting enough sleep
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Strong stimuli like loud noises or bright lights
  • Oversleeping
  • Caffeine withdrawal
  • Drinking alcoholic beverages
  • Missed meals
  • Smoking/exposure to smoke
