Migraine headaches are severe throbbing or pounding pain with accompanying sensitivity to light, sound or smells. The pain usually occurs on one side of the head, but can also occur on both sides of the head. Migraine headaches are believed to occur due to physiologic changes in the neurotransmitters within the brain.
Common symptoms include but are not limited to eye pain, nausea, vomiting, aura prior to onset of headache, blind spots in eye, numbness or weakness on one side of the body etc. Rarely speech disturbances may also occur. The episodic pain may be of mild to moderate severity. Physical activity or motion is severely restricted due to aggravation of symptoms during this time.
Migraine headaches have a genetic predisposition.
X-rays, EMG, EEG, CT scan, MRI, blood chemistry, urinalysis, eye exam, spinal tap are used to diagnose migraine headaches and rule out other underlying medical conditions.
