Migraines are a kind of headache that can also involve other symptoms as listed below. Migraines can affect both adults and children. They are more common in women than in men. Migraines often start off mild and then get worse.

Related Symptoms
  • Many people get other symptoms of migraine that happen several hours or even a day before the headache. Providers call these "premonitory" or "prodromal" symptoms. They might include yawning, feeling depressed, irritability, food cravings, constipation, or a stiff neck.
  • Nausea and sometimes vomiting
  • Headache – The headache gets worse over several hours and is usually throbbing. It often affects 1 side of the head.
  • Feeling sensitive to light and noise-lying down in a quiet, dark room often helps
  • Aura – Some people have something called a migraine "aura." An aura is a symptom or feeling that happens before or during the migraine headache. Each person's aura is different, but in most cases the aura affects the vision. You might see flashing lights, bright spots, or zig-zag lines, or lose part of your vision. Or you might have numbness and tingling of the lips, lower face, and fingers of 1 hand. Some people hear sounds or have ringing in their ears as part of their aura. The aura usually lasts a few minutes to an hour and then goes away, but most often lasts 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Women who get migraines with aura usually cannot take birth control pills. That's because they might increase the risk of stroke.
Common Treatments
There are many different medicines that can help with migraines. Your provider can help you find the best treatment for your situation.
For mild migraines, your provider might suggest an over-the-counter medicine such as acetaminophen (sample brand name: Tylenol), ibuprofen (sample brand names: Advil, Motrin), or naproxen (sample brand name: Aleve). There is also a medicine that combines acetaminophen, aspirin, and caffeine (sample brand name: Excedrin).
For more severe migraines, there are prescription medicines that can help. Some, such as medicines called triptans, help to relieve the pain from a migraine attack. Other prescription medicines can help to make migraine attacks happen less often. If you have severe nausea or vomiting with your migraines, there are medicines that can help with that, too.
Do not try to treat frequent migraines on your own with non-prescription pain medicines. Taking non-prescription pain medicines too often can actually cause more headaches later.
