Migraine Headaches

Migraines are a type of headache characterized by intense, throbbing pain often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. These painful episodes can last for hours or even days. Migraines may be preceded by warning symptoms such as visual disturbances, known as aura, adding to their debilitating nature. They can significantly impact daily activities and quality of life, and the exact cause is still largely unknown, though genetics and environmental factors are thought to play a role.
