Acute migraine headache

Description of Acute migraine headache

Migraine is a condition that is characterized by unilateral headaches, nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine can affect all the ages. An acute attack may be initiated with one of many triggers. Food, beverages, smell, bright light, exercise, stress, and hormones can trigger an acute attack or migrainous pain. Other than severe headache that refrain you from normal daily activities, you may feel lethargic; sensitive to light, sound, or odors; anxious; stuffiness in nose, and tension in muscles.

Migraine can be majorly classified based on the presence or absence of some symptoms that can occur before the pain appears. If symptoms like nausea or vomiting precede the pain, it is called as migraine with aura. If the pain comes off directly without any preceding symptoms, it is referred to as migraine without aura.
