• Let’s take a look at migraine headaches. 09 June 2017 | View comments

  • A migraine is a severe headache felt as a throbbing pain on one side of the head typically aggravated by physical exertion, and lasting 6-72 hours. Many people also have symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and increased sensitivity to light or sound. Migraines classically affect 20% of women and 7% of men; they usually begin in early adulthood. Migraines usually have a specific trigger, and the key to long-term management is to identify the trigger, and avoiding or mitigating these wherever possible; which is often easier said than done. As with tension and cervicogenic headaches, there is a large overlap with other headache type, so the incidence rate is probably higher than stated here.
