Migraines are recurrent episodes that occur as a form of headache accompanied by other neurological symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, and vertigo. People with a migraine may also experience extreme sensitivity to light, sound, or movement of the head. These headaches are often debilitating and can last from hours to days. There are over 39 people in the United States who suffer from migraine headaches. Any person can have a migraine at any age, but it is more common in women and during the ages between 30 and 50. Migraine episodes can be so severe that they interfere with the day’s normal activities and cause emotional distress. Some medications may help prevent some migraines from happening or make them less painful.
