OverviewA migraine is a form of headache which presents with throbbing pain and pulsating sensation usually on one side of the head. Most of the time, the migraine starts with a precipitating symptom known as an aura that occurs before or together with the migraine. An aura can be a visual disturbance, flashes of light, blind spots, or other disturbances such as tingling of one side of the face. During the prodromal stage, there would be subtle changes such as mood changes, neck stiffness, food cravings and so on. For the aura stage which can happen before or during the attack, it can be visual phenomenon, pins and needles sensation, hearing noises or music and so on. Then it will be followed by a migraine attack which then continued. Triggers for migraine are like chocolate, cheese, oral contraceptive pills and caffeine.
