Migraine is a primary headache of varying intensity, often accompanied by sensory warning signs such as nausea, blind spots, tingling in the arms and legs, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound. The pain that migraine brings can last for hours sometimes even for days. Migraine is an inherited tendency to have headaches with sensory disturbance. Migraine is an instability in the way the brain deals with incoming sensory information and that instability can become influenced by physiological changes like sleep, exercise and hunger.
