Migraine

Migraine affects one in seven adults and is characterized by recurrent, often unilateral, pulsating headaches that become moderate to evere in intensity and are aggravated by movement. Typically, the headaches are accompanied by associated symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, hypersensitivity to light, noise, or odors, and other accompanying symptoms. Attacks last from a few hours to three days. For treatment, pain-relieving drugs and special migraine medications are available for the acute attack, and a number of non-pharmacological and medicinal measures are available for prevention.
