A migraine is a condition that is accompanied by a severe, throbbing headache. Migraine attacks usually first appear at a young age. They last from 4 to 72 hours. During an attack, a person becomes disabled due to severe pain. The causes of migraine are still not fully understood, but many mechanisms are well studied. We can say that the disease is associated with dysregulation of the vascular tone of the brain. The pain builds up gradually over several minutes or hours, after which it also recedes. The pain increases with physical activity and rapid head movements. The migraine sufferer tends to lie down in a dark, quiet room. Sometimes migraines are followed by nausea and vomiting. A small number of patients also complain of nasal blockage, watery eyes.
