If you suffer from migraine headaches, it can radically alter your life. They have the ability to take you away from the things you want to or need to do during the day or even days, when they strike. Some common symptoms of a migraine are throbbing pain or pulsing sensations. They usually occur just on one side of your head and can be accompanied by blurred vision, lightheadedness, vomiting, nausea, or extreme sensitivity to sound or light.
According to the Mayo Clinic, a migraine attack can last from four to 72 hours if left untreated. Frequency of attacks varies greatly. They also state “migraines are often undiagnosed and untreated.” It is suggested that if you experience some of the signs and symptoms of a migraine, you should record the details surrounding them.
