What Are The Symptoms of Migraine?

Migraine symptoms can vary from person to person, but common symptoms include:

  • Headache: A severe, throbbing, often one-sided headache.
  • Aura: Some people experience visual disturbances or other sensory changes before the headache (auras).
  • Sensitivity to Light and Sound: Photophobia (sensitivity to light) and phonophobia (sensitivity to sound) are common.
  • Nausea and Vomiting: Many migraine sufferers experience nausea and may vomit during an attack.
  • Pulsing or Pounding Sensation: The headache often feels like a pulsing or pounding sensation.
  • Duration: Migraines can last for hours to days.

It’s important to note that not all migraines include all of these symptoms, and some individuals may experience “silent migraines” with auras but no headache. If you suspect you have migraines, it’s advisable to consult a healthcare professional for a proper diagnosis and management plan.
