Migraine

What is a migraine?
Migraine is a common condition which causes severe headaches.
Migraine headaches are often accompanied by other symptoms, for example nausea, sensitivity to light or vomiting. 


How is migraine diagnosed? 
The diagnosis usually happens if people have a combination of symptoms and doctors have ruled out other disorders. 
The International Headache Society breaks migraines into two categories: migraine with aura and migraine without aura
Aura causes sufferers to see spots, lights or blurry lines before pain strikes, among other symptoms. 
To diagnose a migraine without aura, at least two of the following symptoms must be present: 
    - nausea, 
    - vomiting, 
    - sensitivity to light, 
    - sensitivity to sound or sensitivity to smell.
