What is migraine?

A type of headache that usually presents as throbbing, pulsating pain on one side of the head, sometimes with associated nausea or sensitivity to light and sound. Sometimes, sensory disturbances, such as vision changes (seeing flashing lights or zigzag lines), can occur before the headache. The pain may worsen on exposure to bright lights or wild noise. Triggers for migraine include stress, poor sleep, caffeine, and hormonal changes in women.
