Migraine headaches, or “migraines,” are a type of severe, episodic headache. Migraines are typically experienced on one side of the head and are often associated with other neurological symptoms.
Symptoms of influenza include sudden-onset:
- light / sound sensitivity
- vision changes
In some cases, migraines are triggered by external events or exposures. Common triggers include:
- hormone changes
- sleep problems
- foods / food additives
- specific lights / sounds / smells
In some cases, migraines seem random or are not easily associated with any specific trigger. A headache diary can sometimes be helpful for tracking episodes.
