According to the National Headache Foundation, over 45 million Americans suffer from chronic, recurring headaches and of these, 28 million suffer from migraines. There are several types of headaches with over 150 headache categories established.

What are Migraine Symptoms?

1. Throbbing or pounding pain. Unlike other types of head pain, migraine pain in the head is characterized by a relentless throbbing or pounding -- as though one’s pulse is beating severely in the head. The pain usually begins on one side of the head, at the temple, and can spread downward to the eye, face, and even neck.

2. Pain that disrupts normal activity. The simple act of moving may be difficult if you have a migraine, and pain may be aggravated or worsen from activity.

3. You feel sick to your stomach, or feel like vomiting. While nausea and vomiting can be caused by a number of factors, including certain diseases, pregnancy, drugs, alcohol, or eating spoiled food, it may also accompany migraines in some sufferers.

4. Sensitivity. You are unusually bothered by, or especially sensitive to, light or sound. During (and sometimes prior to) a migraine attack, many sufferers experience strong, painful reactions to light, loud noises, and certain odors.

These are some of the common symptoms often associated with migraine. It is important to realize that everyone’s migraine is different. You may only have some of the symptoms listed above, or you may have them all. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, be sure to contact your physician. There are treatment programs available that may help you.

Some individuals also experience warning signals or an aura prior to the onset of symptoms. Only about 15% of all migraine sufferers experience aura -- visual, auditory, or other sensory or physical occurrences that indicate a migraine is on its way. These signals occur shortly before the migraine pain starts.

Some types of aura:

1. Visual disturbances such as flashing lights, blurred vision or zigzag lines.
2. Numbness
3. Hallucinations
4. Loss of speech
